CEIAG Provision at Elms
A principal aim of Elms careers programme is to prepare young people for life beyond school and college. Elms School is committed to providing a comprehensive and high quality careers programme, to support all of our students’ knowledge and understanding of how to manage their own lifelong learning and career path. Our programme aims to raise all students’ aspirations, irrespective of age, background, ability or SEND, and to develop our students’ employability skills across the school so that they are best prepared for their lives both during their time at Elms, and in the future. Through our provision students begin to develop a real understanding, of careers and work-related information that develops their sense of enquiry not only about careers and higher/further education but also an awareness of how the skills developed in school are applicable and integral ingredients in the modern workplace.
