Careers Programme Information

Oak Lodge provides a planned programme of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) for pupils in year 7 – 13 that is impartial and engaging. The programme is designed to develop high aspirations and encourage pupils to consider a broad and ambitious range of career options. The curriculum meets the differing needs and requirements of our pupils. This is developed throughout a pupil’s time at the school and is always supportive of their abilities, strengths and skills.

The Aims and Purpose of the Programme are:

  • Prepare pupils for the transition to life after Oak Lodge
  • Support pupils in making informed decisions which are appropriate for them
  • Provide pupils with well-rounded experiences
  • Develop personal characteristics such as social skills, communication, independence and resilience
  • Inspire and motivate pupils to develop themselves as individuals and live as independently as is possible.
