Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

At Chase High School, we are committed to providing good quality careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) and work-related learning (WRL) for all students in Year Groups 12, 13 and 14. We measure ourselves using the Gatsby Benchmarks which is a Careers Benchmark Tool implemented by the DfE. The eight benchmarks provide us with a framework that helps us to identify our strengths and areas that we can develop.

The careers programme combines career planning lessons, skills workshops, one-to-one independent careers guidance, mentoring, online career information resources and a wide range of events and activities, including: sector career talks, employer visits, careers fair, inspirational speakers, enterprise activities, career advice evenings and work experience.


Our Careers Lead, Edel Donlon, leads, facilitates and promotes our careers programme throughout the school. Edel Donlon is part of the steering group at the Local Authority for Careers Enterprise through the area. Our school is recognised as a lead within the area.
