Education and Guidance

Curriculum Leader Mrs Whitefoot

Careers Education and Guidance (CEG) has an absolutely essential role to play in preparing students for the choices, changes and transitions they will encounter as they become adults.

Through effective CEG, our students can explore and understand the world of work, consider their own values and attitudes and learn strategies to cope with the changing demands and expectations, in order that they can realise their full potential. The 2011 Education Act puts a statutory duty on schools to provide careers education and impartial information and advice which promotes the best interest of the individual student.

Ruskin Community High School recognises this duty towards young people and careers provision has been developed accordingly. Furthermore provision is planned around the framework of delivery laid out in the 2009 Statutory Guidance on Impartial Careers Education.
