2019-20 is going to be an exciting year for Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at Marden Bridge Middle. We are actively engaging with the nationally respected Gatsby Benchmarks and welcome any input from parents and carers.
The Gatsby Benchmarks provide the structure to our growing careers programme which aims to give all our pupils the advice and guidance they need to make informed decisions about their futures.
The school is developing a multi-level approach to assessing careers provision:
A full overview of the careers programme at Marden Bridge Middle can be found in our annually reviewed Careers Policy. Pupils, parents, staff and employers can access this document to find out more about careers at our school.
Please keep checking here, and follow the School twitter feed @MardenBridge for updates to careers news and further advice. The twitter feed will retweet helpful information for parents and pupils too!
Please get in touch if you have anything to offer our CEIAG programme.
Any providers wishing to request access should contact Lynsey Jackson, Careers Lead:
Good quality careers education will raise the aspirations of all young people. It will increase motivation by linking activities in school with preparation for life post 16 and post 18. CEIAG will, therefore, contribute to raising students achievement, help students focus on their longer-term career ambitions and ensure an equality of opportunity for all.
At Marden Bridge, we provide a comprehensive CEIAG programme to students in every year group and this includes aspects of work-related learning, enterprise education and option choices. Students in our Sixth Form are very well supported as they make their applications to University, apply for Higher Level Apprenticeships or other non-University posts 18 pathways.
