Careers Education

All pupils have timetabled Careers Education were they are provided with opportunities to:

 

  • Research and follow their career goals
  • Discuss their career aspirations with Careers staff, Careers Service NI, employers and external agencies
  • Recognise their abilities and strengths and plan for careers that will enrich and reward them
  • Be prepared for further and higher education
  • Experience the World of Work (Year 12 and 13 pupils)
  • Participate in mock interviews with a range of professionals from across Northern Ireland
  • Visit different industries and develop links with employers

Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) is a vital component of the curriculum. It ensures our pupils acquire the skills employers look for in today’s world of work. In addition, pupils gain knowledge of the career pathways open to them.

 

We work in partnership with many external organisations including:

  • Sentinus
  • Careers Service NI
  • Young Enterprise
  • Queens University
  • Price Waterhouse Coopers
  • University of Ulster
  • Knights of Columbanus
  • Work Force Training Services
