Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in.

Students & Learning

What is CEIAG?

CEIAG stands for careers education, information and guidance.

Beckfoot Thornton are continuously reviewing and developing the CEIAG programme so that our students are accessing a dynamic careers education from both internal and external perspectives.

Research shows that a young person who has 4 or more encounters with an employer is 86% less likely to be unemployed or not in education or training and can earn up to 18% more during their career. A young person’s career reflects the progress they make in learning and work.

It is part of the vision and mission of Beckfoot Thornton that no learners will become ‘Not in Education Employment or Training’ (NEET). We believe that all learners need a planned programme of activities to help them choose pathways that are right for them and to be able to manage their careers, sustain employability and achieve personal and economic wellbeing throughout their lives.

Beckfoot Thornton recognises that it has a statutory and moral duty to provide careers education in Years 7 – 11 (1997 Education Act 2003 Regulations) and to give learners access to impartial careers information, education and guidance (1997 Education Act, 2008 Education and Skills Act). We are committed to providing a planned programme of impartial careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) for all learners in Years 7 – 11, in partnership with engaged providers; and to provide extra support as required for learners with additional needs. Beckfoot follows best practice guidance from the careers profession and from external bodies such as Ofsted.
