Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

The Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance ( CEIAG ) package is delivered through two components Careers Education and Career Guidance, both of which are underpinned by unbiased, impartial information. CEIAG will be an integral part of the curriculum programme providing the learner with a planned and co-ordinated range of activities that will enable them to deal with choices and transitions related to their future education, training, employment and life as an adult member of society.

The programme is delivered to individual learners or small groups with the tasks covered by a qualified CEAIG Advisor and employers, who will provide the expertise in Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance ( CEIAG ).

It will help all learners to develop their capacity to make decisions. It will also develop their personal qualities to enable them to live satisfying and effective lives in a changing society in which paid employment is a part.

CEIAG in Schools

EBSI have developed a range of Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programmes and services for delivery in schools.

We are providing impartial advice and guidance and are working with local employers, sixth forms, further education colleges, universities and apprenticeship providers to ensure that students are given as much information as possible to help them decide on their career choices.

Schools have a role to play in supporting their pupils to make well informed and realistic decisions by providing access to impartial and independent information and guidance about the range of education and training options that are most likely to help young people achieve their ambitions

This guidance was updated to help schools plan for the extension of the duty to secure independent and impartial careers guidance down to year 8 and up to years 12 and 13 in September 2013.

CEIAG has FOUR essential and interlinked principles:

Careers Education – a planned programme in the curriculum that gives students the knowledge and skills for planning and managing their careers

Careers Information – including learning options, skills, occupations, labour market information (LMI) and progression routes

Careers Advice and Guidance – personalised help from specialist advisers to identify long-term goals and plan steps to attain them – these advisers to be appropriately qualified and receive ongoing CPD

Work-related learning – experiences within and outside of the curriculum which help students learn about economic well being, careers and enterprise
