CEIAG makes a valuable contribution in the preparation of students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life by enabling them to make informed choices for post 16 education and training facilitating a successful transition from mainstream education to further education and employment. At Marshland High School we work hard to provide the opportunity for students to speak to a careers advisor for up to date advice, provide opportunities to hear from Post-16, further education providers and other training providers to ensure they make the right choice for them.
Our aim as a school is to provide an inclusive, effective and stable careers strategy that raises our students’ aspirations throughout the entirety of their school career.
