Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

Information, Advice and Guidance

Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) is an integral part of the learner journey from the very first contact, through the teaching and assessment process, past final certification and beyond into the learner’s career. The objective is to promote, encourage and nurture learning as an ongoing process. Brighter Futures is committed to supporting its learners to identify and complete qualifications that fulfil their full potential and meet their individual, personal and professional needs, and career aspirational goals. We will ensure that the processes of informing, advising and guiding learners are accorded a high priority, and are recognised as being crucial in enabling learners to make decisions regarding the opportunities and challenges of adult and working life. We recognise the essential part played by IAG in supporting our learners to make choices about their lifestyle, education, and future careers, to raise their aspiration and achievements. IAG also plays an important role in developing and broadening the curriculum, increasing participation, and improving the achievement and progress of all learners. This policy sets out a commitment by Brighter Futures to implement IAG standards and to support an entitlement for all learners. To make it accessible, attractive, relevant and provide clear progression, coherent programmes and flexible, differentiated learning opportunities. You will attend a Progress Review meeting with your tutor at 3 key stages within the year. This is a one-to-one meeting and will focus on the progress being made towards your targets, milestones and progression pathway.
