Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) is an essential part of the support we offer to students at Bury Secondary PRU. Effective careers support is a vital part of the curriculum and helps to prepare young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they will encounter as they prepare for transitions to post-secondary education and adulthood.
For a lot of our pupils we are the second chance and a restart of their educational experiences to change their futures. We aim that through positive re-engagement, pupils will rise in their positive experiences, aspirations and attainment, forging stronger routes to successfully transition into further education, training or employment. We incorporate careers into our personal development curriculum, under the 'aspirations' building programme.
Through our links with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, we triangulate their core ambition for young people that 'Young people leave education, ready to succeed in the labour market, with a balance of academic, technical and 'life ready' skills.
