Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance
We are committed to providing a planned programme of careers education and impartial information, advice and guidance for all students in year 7-11, in partnership with Positive Steps.
The BLC strives to work within the Gatsby Benchmarks supported by the Raising Participation and Apprenticeship Team.
The careers programme is designed to meet the needs of the students in our community. It is designed to ensure progressions through a variety of activities that are appropriate to students' stages of career learning, planning and development.
Students are entitled to CEIAG which meets professional standards of practice and which is person centered and impartial.
It is embedded into students' experience of the whole curriculum and based on a partnership with students and their parents/carers.
Raising aspirations, challenging stereotyping and promoting equality and diversity are key aspects.
We currently hold 'The Quality in Careers Standard' for Inspiring Information, Advice and Guidance in school and we are working very hard to ensure that we maintain this high standard in the future.
