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.

  • Provide pupils with well-rounded experiences
  • Develop personal characteristics such as social skills, communication, independence and resilience
