We will shortly be supporting National Careers Week at Sidcot School. This national campaign is supported by schools and colleges across the UK and aims to celebrate and promote good quality careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG). As you will know, the school has made considerable strides in enhancing CEIAG provision and this event is one of many initiatives planned to make careers a prominent feature of the Sidcot entitlement.
During the week, a number activities will be taking place, as follows:

As you will know, the choices facing young people have never been so diverse or complex. With the review of higher education tuition fees announced this week, the government has also acknowledged that students need more advice and support in understanding progression routes including other forms of higher education and degree apprenticeships. At Sidcot, we want to help students broaden their horizons and understand all the options available to them. National Careers Week helps us to do this – and provides staff and students with the impetus and imagination to explore so many more exciting career opportunities, yet to be considered. Please do support us!
