CEIAG - Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance within Sperrin Integrated College is regarded as not only important but an essential part of each student’s school life. It is through the study of careers that students will develop many of their employability skills as well as gaining opportunities to self-evaluate and realise the skills, abilities and qualities they already possess. They will also gain knowledge through their careers research as to the skills, abilities and qualities that they need to develop in order to achieve a career in their chosen industry.
We believe that all students can achieve their full potential and access careers of their choice if provided with the required opportunities in their lives. Our students are given these opportunities via our CEIAG programme.
