At Longbenton High School CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) is taught as part of Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE). Topics of study include finance awareness, enterprise, work experience preparation and employability skills. You will also have several opportunities to meet and work with a variety of employers from different sectors.
All subject areas make links to careers when appropriate to help you to understand the relevance of your learning to the world of work. Did you know that all young people must remain in education, training or employment with training until the age of 18? Your careers education is therefore vitally important to help shape and work towards your future goals and aspirations.
During the year there will be opportunities for you to evaluate the various careers activities you are involved in and provide feedback on how we can further improve the programme.
