At Ormiston Latimer we offer a comprehensive approach to preparing students for their future careers and post-16 experiences. By providing a variety of opportunities and activities, students can explore different paths and make informed decisions about their education and career choices. Collaborating with local authority partners, local colleges and universities where possible is beneficial as it allows students to get a taste of higher education and understand the options available to them. Additionally, incorporating apprenticeship and work experience advice helps students gain practical skills and real-world experience in their fields of interest.
We aim to develop student employability skills and inform about local, national and international labour market information, guide students to explore and develop career ideas and high aspirations, educate students on the complete spectrum of post 16 pathways and prepare them for successful post 16 transitions. CEIAG is an integrated aspect of Latimer Academy’s SMSC and PSHE policies and ensures students are prepared for life and work in Britain today by:
