Melland High School is committed to providing a planned programme of impartial careers education and information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) and Enterprise Education for all students. The curriculum incorporates a wide range of planned activities, based on outcomes for pupils that develop knowledge, skills and understanding useful in lifelong learning and work. CEIAG is an inclusive, broad and balanced programme of careers education and personal development that provides young people of all abilities with the opportunity to ‘learn by doing’ in class, throughout school, in the local community and by access to a range of specialist professionals eg. SALT, careers and work contexts.
Learning is complimented by themed learning days, enterprise projects, jobs fairs, college visits, enrichment activities (work experience or supported internships) and as part of their overall education which is broad, balanced, challenging, inspirational, challenges stereotypes and promotes equality of opportunity.
Activities are personalised to ensure progress for learning and development, and to strengthen motivation, aspirations and attainment at school. Students develop an awareness of the extent and diversity of opportunities in learning and work to make informed choices based on an understanding of available options. Students, parents and carers are supported throughout so positive progression is made to navigate transitions during the academic and vocational choices students will make during their time at Melland High School and beyond.
