Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

A career is a “course or progress through life, preparing for the next stage and advancing oneself”. Careers education, advice and guidance at BDB is seen as whole school approach and a key aspect of all students learning. It is our endeavour to support all students at all key stages in order to help them to become self-aware and to acquire skills, knowledge and attributes required for their future and essentially develop into well rounded individuals who contribute positively to society.

Our Careers department organises numerous activities and events throughout the year including visits to Higher Education and Further Education establishments, skills events/workshops, work experience, careers fair and careers insight talks provided by local employers and alumni from a wide selection of industries.

Students have easy access to Mrs Eljamaly in the Careers Office based in G36, and are encouraged to drop in to talk to Mrs Eljamaly if they need any assistance. Within the Careers Library there is a wide-range of careers literature, including prospectus’ further and higher education, apprenticeships and traineeships. The careers part of this website has a wide range of information which will allow students to have easy access to relevant information.

BDB’s Student Careers & Employability activities are monitored, evaluated and reviewed on an on-going basis. Feedback is welcomed from all members of the school community, this provides the basis for the careers programme development plan.

All students will have meetings with the school external Careers Advisor over the course of their time at BDB, including at least one 1:1 meeting.

Please also take a look at the labour market trends within our local area and nationally to see which areas of employment are on the increase.
