The Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance provision (CEIAG) at The Forest High School aims to support students in making informed choices about their next stage of education, employment and training.

Students should leave school with the necessary skills, knowledge and self-awareness needed to prepare them for all opportunities outside of school so they can transition successfully with long lasting career management skills.

Careers Education

Our careers related learning programme for years 7-11 is delivered through a range of activities including:

  • Timetabled careers lesson within fortnightly PSHE
  • Visits to Further Education and Higher Education Institutions
  • Work Experience placements in year 10
  • Annual Careers Fair
  • Employer talks during assemblies and subject specific lessons
  • Careers related learning sessions through whole school activities days and external trips
  • Apprenticeship information and advice sessions
  • The Brilliant Club
  • Careers interviews

Careers Advice and Guidance

Students can access impartial guidance and support through our dedicated Careers Adviser, who is available for 1:1 careers interviews or small groups throughout the year.

Students will be supported in understanding and interpreting information on a range of options and be advised on how best to plan their next steps.

Careers Information

Careers information is available through links on our website, through resources in the school careers library, through e-mail and telephone helplines.
