At Fairfield School we teach our students the skills and attitudes required to enable them to become as independent as possible and to prepare them for adult life. We provide a broad and diverse curriculum to give students the opportunity to reach their full potential. We aim to allow all students to have access to a range of vocational experiences in a variety of settings. These settings include the school, the local and wider community and places of work.
CEIAG (Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) is an essential part of the support we offer to students at Fairfield School to help them to make the right choices. This includes impartial advice and guidance at key transitional times for young people and access to up to date information on careers and other issues affecting their well-being and continuation of learning. Effective transitional support can help prepare young people for all aspects of their journey into adulthood and help them to make informed choices about their future.
Careers education provides a way of developing knowledge, understanding and experience of opportunities available to our young people when they make their journey into adulthood. Our programme aims to develop the skills needed for improved decision making about the future.
