CEIAG (Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance)
At Ealing Alternative Provision (EAP), our intent for careers provision is to guarantee that all of our students are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed decisions about their future pathways. We recognise the importance of linking curriculum learning to careers, especially in the core subjects.
Our work experience plays a crucial role in allowing young students to develop essential skills, build contacts, and explore potential career options. At EAP, we recognise the value of work experience and aim to provide meaningful placements for our students. We are actively increasing our partnerships with organisations like Music for Children and other employers to ensure that each student can secure a placement that aligns with their interests and goals. Through these experiences, our students gain valuable insights into different industries and professions, helping them make more informed decisions about their future careers.
In addition we fully comply with the Baker Clause introduced under the Technical and Further Education Act 2017. This clause emphasises the importance of allowing colleges and training provider’s access to every student in Year 8 to 11, enabling them to inform our students about approved technical education qualifications and apprenticeship opportunities. By providing this access, we aim to broaden our students’ horizons and expose them to a variety of vocational pathways beyond traditional academic routes. We firmly believe that by ensuring our students have access to comprehensive information about technical education and apprenticeships, they will be better prepared for their future endeavours, whether it be further education or entering the world of work.
