Round Oak is committed to providing students with a programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) from Years 7 - 14. Careers education and guidance programmes make a major contribution to preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. Parental involvement is encouraged at all stages. Parents and carers are kept up to date with careers related information through the annual review process, letters, newsletters, coffee morning and transition event.
As part of the careers programme students have the opportunity to participate in work experience placements, visit local colleges and training provides, attend business enterprise days, and talk to local employers. Careers Education helps individuals, and their families to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding required to make appropriate choices and to manage transition whether it be in to college, employment, training or a more individualised programme.
