Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance


Education, Advice and Guidance

All pupils have access to careers education, information, advice and guidance, as part of the curriculum. The programme is delivered in PSHE lessons. This allows students to develop the core skills needed for employment and gain an awareness of the job market.

Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance is a part of every student’s entitlement and here at Lord Derby Academy, we are committed to using a variety of learning experiences to help young people manage the key decision points in their lives. The education they receive prepares them to make informed decisions about the next learning or employment stage for them.
