Careers Guidance for Parents & Carers

At SFX, the Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) Programme is central to each student’s programme of study and progression throughout their college education. The CEIAG Programme is integrated into the Tutorial Programme for our students and is designed to match students’ academic progression and enhance their career plans for the future.

The CEIAG Programme activities include:
• Structured careers lessons for all students
• Booked individual careers interviews (also open
• to parents)
• In house and externally organised events
• Careers workshops
• Job search and interview skills training

Ofsted 2018: “Students receive very good careers guidance which informs them of the potential career opportunities and further and higher education routes available to them.” Read the full report here
