Seaford Head School Investors in Careers Quality Award
Our recent reassessment is successful
Investor in Careers is a quality standard for the management of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) and is now the most widely used quality award of its kind recognised nationally across the country.
To achieve the award Seaford Head School and Sixth Form has demonstrated a commitment to provide impartial, independent careers education, information, advice and guidance to all young people.
This really is one of the highest accolades an organisation can receive for excellence in this area of work and is definitely something that the school is very proud to have achieved a successful reassessment.
The IiC standard is about improving students’ awareness of opportunities, raising their aspirations and working with them to ensure they achieve their full potential.
