Careers Education Programme


Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance


  • To ensure pupils and their parent carers are informed and prepared to achieve aspirational next steps into adulthood and/or the world of work.

Our core aims:

  • All pupils, parent carers and teachers have access to up to date careers information, advice and guidance.
  • All pupils have access to an engaging, enriched, meaningful and developmental careers programme.
  • All pupils transition to a variety of sustained positive destinations.

The Learn to Live Federation has a crucial role to play in preparing students for transitions for their next stage of education, training or employment. Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) are an important and integral part of all pupils’ entitlement and learning here at the Federation to aid their personal and character development.

Through a planned Careers Programme, we are committed to providing the appropriate activities and experiences to enable pupils to make well-informed decisions and successful transitions in life and work. We support pupils to prepare for their preferred transitional pathway whether that is to continue with further education, employment, training or living independently. We have a person-centred approach to pupil outcomes through our EHCP Annual Reviews process, where we work with all stakeholders to shape clear and ambitious targets for pupils to prepare for their next steps.  Throughout the Federation our careers programme is known as ‘Futures’.

Futures is led by our Federation-wide Careers Leader, Ed Rice, 01392 482533

Our impartial and independent Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) is provided by Careers South West.

Do you work in a business that could help provide work experience opportunities for our pupils?
We are always looking for local businesses that are wanting to inspire and educate our pupils about the world of work and expand and develop our Careers Programme. If you think you could help to provide invaluable work experience or other opportunities, in the first instance, please contact Ed Rice –
