Careers Education Information and Guidance

We believe that every student should experience high quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) whilst at Judgemeadow. Alongside their academic achievements this will build their skills offering them improved future social mobility, financial security and well-being.

We believe that every student should experience high quality CEIAG whilst at Judgemeadow.  Alongside their academic achievements this will build their skills offering them improved future social mobility, financial security and therefore well-being. We want to create a culture that allows our students to mature and become confident, employable, aspirational and adaptable learners and employees.

The world of work and nature of employment is changing at an incredible rate.  To be successful in this environment our students need academic success and a range of employability skills, including a positive attitude, resilience and a willingness to learn.

We want to work in partnership with our students and their families alongside employers, colleges and universities so they are able to make informed choices and realise they can be the architects of their futures.


Our Aims

Using the Gatsby Benchmarks to strategically plan and deliver a high quality series of taught, experiential and enrichment activities through years 7 – 11 including further and higher education, apprenticeship and internship information

      • Help students to recognise their strengths, talents and interests and to use these as they consider their post 16 choices.
      • Ensure each student has the opportunity for at least two 1-1 advice sessions with our Careers Advisor.
      • Promote a culture that features educational success as part of an accepted pathway into adulthood.
      • Actively teach employability skills needed for progression to employment and to further and higher education.
      • Help students to understand how these skills make them highly employable within the changing context of work.
      • Create a culture where students have high and realistic aspirations for the future.
      • Expect all staff to buy into this culture of aspiration and achievement.


We measure the impact of this programme through Student Voice, Staff Feedback, Student, Parent & Employer Feedback from specific events and Compass+ Tracking We will be introducing parental feedback using survey monkey from 2020/21. We have an Enterprise Advisor who works at a strategic level to ensure our programme meets the changing needs of our students as they prepare for their future.

Labour Market information

The National Careers Service have compiled an infographic detailing potential labour market growth area for Leicester and Leicestershire


This link gives labour market Information from across the UK. It can be used to explore and compare key information about different occupations and identify potential careers.  It gives headline data relating to pay, hours of work and future employment opportunities as well as a description of the occupation.


This link offers the opportunity to look at your own skills and help you identify which areas of employment you may be interested in.  A quick quiz gets you started



Judgemeadow is proud to have been part of the Leicester City Careers Hub since its inception in 2012.  These regular meetings with schools and colleges from across the city and county have enabled us all to share good practice, gain further understanding through presentations from FE Colleges, universities etc.  All of which have enhanced our provision for our students.

We are one of 20 schools from across the city and county who are part of the LLEP Careers Hub.   These hubs are a new LLEP initiative with our LLEP being one of 20 pilot schemes and the only one in the midlands.

This membership has given us access to additional training for staff and an increased budget for careers opportunities for our students which has included extra support for our SEND Students and the opportunity to attend events such as Teen Tech. 

We are working together across the hub enhancing our data and tracking processes, creating and sharing resources and looking to meet all 8 of the Gatsby Benchmarks as soon as possible.
