Careers and Higher Education
The CEAIG Curriculum
The CEAIG Curriculum (Careers Education, Advice, Information and Guidance) at AGSB aims to give our students the skills they need to choose the appropriate career pathway in a fast-changing world. It aims to raise their aspirations and to promote access to all career pathways. The curriculum is built around the 8 Gatsby benchmarks identified as the hallmark of good careers and enterprise provision. The all-through curriculum is comprehensive being delivered via PSHE lessons in Years 7,8 and 10 and in dedicated careers lessons in Years 9 and 11. ACE lessons in both Years 12 and 13 prepare our Sixth form students for the transition to higher education, apprenticeships, or employment.
