CEIAG Strategy: Fantastic Futures
Fantastic Futures is Brannel’s Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme.
Our aim is to transform careers education by linking education with the ‘real world’, increasing employer engagement and embedding careers into the curriculum in order to help our students make more informed decisions around their future choices. This journey starts in Year 7, well before students start to think about choosing their GCSE options.
Each year our careers leads plan and deliver an effective careers programme that offers advice, experience and contact with employers to encourage our students to aspire, make good choices and understand what they need to do to reach and succeed in the career to which they aspire. Our curriculum and extra-curricular programmes such as the Brannel Challenge support students to develop resilience, confidence and independence and lead a healthy and active lifestyle, helping them to know how to keep physically and mentally healthy. We also work with external partners to support readiness for the next phase of education, training or employment so that students are equipped to make the transition to the next stage successfully.
At the heart of our strategy is Vision 2030 – the economic plan for our region – and the government’s Careers Strategy published in December 2017 which sets out clear guidance to schools around the Statutory Guidance for School Leaders and optional best practice. We are also working closely with Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly Careers Hub to ensure that we continue to implement high quality careers guidance.
