At Byrchall we are passionate about providing Careers Education, Information and Guidance (CEIAG) throughout the students’ education. Students are entitled to CEIAG which meets professional standards of practice and is both personalised and impartial. It is integrated into students’ experience of the whole curriculum and delivered as part of the CASP curriculum in all years.
The programme is structured to deliver outcomes, and raise aspirations. It ensures that every student makes informed decisions and moves on to their choice of Post-16 course at the end of Year 11. The overview below relates to the current CASP programme. In years 7, 8 and 11, the units are taught in the second half of the Autumn term. In years 9 and 10, the units are taught in the second half of the Autumn and Summer terms.
