We are proud to report that Waterfront UTC has made a firm commitment to raise the standards of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance programme. We already have a successful programme in place.
Investor in Careers is a Licensed Awarding Body for the Quality in Careers Standard award, which showcases and supports the management of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG).
Since 31st March 2017, all careers standard awards now follow a national set of standards known as the Quality in Careers Standard.
Investor in Careers is designed to raise the standard of CEIAG provision delivered by schools and colleges nationally. It provides a clear framework for meeting statutory guidance and it supports preparation for Ofsted by enabling schools and colleges to demonstrate how they are meeting the requirement of preparing students for the next stage in their journey.
All Investor in Careers Award holders are required to demonstrated a commitment to provide impartial, independent careers education, information, advice and guidance to all young people.
The standard places high value on work related learning and employability skills and seeks to support the management of CEIAG delivery. It is the most widely used quality award of its kind nationally.
This really is one of the highest accolades an organisation can receive for excellence in this area of work and is definitely something the award holder can be very proud of. The Quality in Careers Standard is about improving students’ awareness of opportunities, raising their aspirations and working with them to ensure they achieve their full potential.
