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 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.

LLEP Careers Hub(s)

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 have also successfully applied and been accepted as one of 20 schools from across the city and county to be 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 will give us access to training for staff and an increased budget for careers opportunities for our students.  We will be working together to enhance our data and tracking processes and to meet all 8 of the Gatsby Benchmarks as soon as possible.
