Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance
Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) helps you to identify your unique set of skills and knowledge.
We explore how your abilities can be applied in different career sectors.
We also advise you on qualification pathways that will give you the training that will further develop your skills
All students receive special CEIAG lessons as part of PSHEE. We also provide special assemblies and parental meetings to help guide you to make the important decisions that will shape your future.
Careers bulletins, with up to date information, are emailed to all year 10 - year 13 students once a fortnight. The bulletin is also attached to the regular NDHS newsletter to parents and carers.
