Careers Information, Advice and Guidance (CIAG)

At Theale Green School, it is our aim that our students are prepared for the next stage in their lives.

We know how important employers view strong employability skills. Our career programme has been designed to make our students aware of real working life, motivating them to achieve their goals. It is our responsibility to support our students by not only giving advice to make the right decision, but also by providing them with independent information, and teaching them interpersonal and management aptitudes, which are crucial skills when starting a career. We will draw on the eight Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance which include:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2.  Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance

Our Careers Overview can be found here.

Our Careers Link at Theale Green School is Dr Anne Richards.

The majority of our students will have the opportunity to undertake work experience. This will take place either in year 10 or in year 12.

We have a subscription to “Fast Tomato” to allow you to investigate which career you might be interested in. Please ask your form tutor for login details and follow the link here.
