At MGGS, Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) are taken very seriously. We believe that providing careers education is an essential part of a young person’s development into a young adult. MGGS students are all regularly challenged to consider their future while being aware of their skills and how they can adapt and apply these to the world beyond school. By giving our students access to information about a wide variety of possible career paths, we broaden their horizons and inspire them to achieve their goals and ambitions. My role as the schools full time, dedicated ‘Careers and Higher Education Coordinator’ is to be available for all students and parents to discuss all future aspirations, options, CVs, interview practice, apprenticeships, UCAS applications, and any other careers guidance. To assist this aim, MGGS is equipped with an accessible and up-to-date careers library with computers, careers guides, and university prospectuses. I also arrange a significant number of interactive workshops and talks from businesses, apprenticeships and universities across all the year groups to inspire our students and expose them to as wide a range of options as possible. In addition, we offer five Focus Days, spread throughout the academic year, with each year group experiencing careers themed sessions, aimed at encouraging them to think about the future, meet potential employers and practice essential employability skills such as CV writing and interview skills.
