Careers Education Information, Advice & Guidance (CEIAG)

Dedicated to Achieving Dreams

It is part of the vision and mission of Levenshulme High School that all students need a planned programme of activities to help them choose progression routes that are appropriate for them in order that they are able to manage their careers, sustain employability and achieve personal and economic wellbeing; thus, they are prepared for life in modern Britain. It is committed to providing a planned programme of impartial careers education and information, advice and guidance for all learners in Years 7-11, in partnership with the agencies, educational establishments and employers and to providing extra support, as required, for vulnerable learners and those with additional needs.

  • Desire to succeed in and beyond school
  • Resilience to move forward
  • Encourage and empower each other
  • Aim to achieve the best in whatever we do
  • Motivate and inspire
  • Self-love to look after ourselves

Our Work Related Learning Coordinator and designated Careers Lead is Mrs Qureshi who coordinates the day-to day delivery of the careers programme. The CEIAG programme includes school visits, work experience placements, careers fair, STEM sessions, exhibitions, post 16 workshops (on colleges/sixth form/apprenticeships and traineeship and T levels) and inspirational speakers. Mrs Qureshi is available for consultation on the first floor of the Crossley building. There is also a drop-in session during morning break and lunch if students have any questions on careers or post 16 options.

Career Adviser

We work closely with ‘Our Futures’ for careers guidance and work experience opportunities. Our Futures is registered with Careers Development Institute and holds the Matrix standard Accreditation.

She is available in school on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Any students from any year group can make an appointment with her via Mrs Qureshi (Work Related Learning Coordinator) or attend her lunch time drop in sessions.
