CEIAG delivery is ongoing throughout the academic year, for all year groups

Careers Statement of Intention

At Bottisham Village College we intend to support the life development of our students. Preparation for future transitions should be smooth and well informed to facilitate effective career management.  Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) aims to support a young person during activities to enable them to gain a deeper understanding of themselves as they move through school life and beyond. CEIAG embraces the College ethos:
‘We are about far more than outstanding exam results: we believe in a truly all-round education, where students develop independence, resilience and the skills needed to achieve their potential beyond secondary education.’

Careers Programme Summary

  • Year 7 students begin to explore the world of work. They consider their own skills and qualities and how these are linked to their interests, aspirations and their learning.
  • Year 8 students build on the knowledge gained in Year 7 to consider how their skills and qualities can be applied to possible occupational roles in the future.
  • Year 9 students begin to consider their GCSE options. They attend events and assemblies designed to provide key information to support their decision making. Knowledge is developed through information, advice and guidance from subject teachers and they have the opportunity to talk to a qualified career guidance counsellor about their choices.
  • Year 10 students have 2 weeks of work experience to gain first-hand knowledge of the workplace and what employers are seeking in a future workforce. They participate in various careers-related activities, including college visits, designed to support their post 16 pathways. They all have the opportunity to meet with a qualified careers guidance counsellor to discuss their options beyond Year 11.
  • Year 11 student attend a careers fair where they have the opportunity to talk to employers about occupation possibilities in their local area. They attend CV sessions and a mock interview day to support future employability and those interested in apprenticeships attend bespoke workshops to support their applications. All students receive support with the Post 16 application process including writing personal statements. Students are able to book a second careers guidance interview with a qualified career guidance counsellor if they want information, advice and guidance about their next steps.
