Education: exposure to learning about careers and the world of work. This is done through our courses and through visits to industry, attendance at events such as the Careers and Apprenticeship Show and careers fairs, visits from people in different jobs, work experience placements, community projects and use of good quality careers websites and information.
Information: provision of factual information. For example, a college prospectus that gives you information about the courses that a college offers, use of careers websites such as Career Pilot.
Advice: an opinion or a suggestion given about what you could do in a particular situation, e.g. if you say you want to be a hairdresser you might be told that you could go to college or do an apprenticeship and the person offering advice might tell you what they think would be best for you.
Guidance: through Personal Guidance with your careers practitioner (qualified to level 4 or 6 in CIAG), you will learn more about yourself, your skills, abilities and areas of interest. We will explore your career ideas with you and encourage you to research these further using careers information. We will provide you with sources of accurate, up-to-date, impartial information and advice on routes into employment / volunteering, education and training.
