Inspired to Make a Difference


Careers Education, Information and Guidance (CEIAG) at The Derby High School. 

At The Derby High School, we are committed to providing high-quality impartial career guidance that empowers our young people to raise their aspirations, capitalise on the opportunities available to them and make independent well-informed decisions about their future. Our careers programme has been developed with the aim of increasing social mobility and supports everyone’s right to fulfil their highest potential and ambition. 

Good career guidance has never been more important. Data and research tells us that changes in technology, the technical education system and the labour market mean that the future jobs available to our young people, and the skills and qualifications needed to reach them, are changing all the time. Many skilled jobs require specific education and training, and therefore young people need the right support to make better-informed decisions in relation to choosing their next steps. 

At The Derby High School, we continue to work strategically and with ambition to ensure that an innovative, non-biased and aspirational careers programme is embedded across our entire student body. Furthermore, staff at The Derby High School work cooperatively to ensure our CEIAG provision is reactive and relevant to the current needs of our young people.
