At Langdon Park School we value the importance of embedding a strong careers programme for all students. We believe in having a strong careers programme from Year 7 as this is more impactful on our student’s development.
Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) forms an integral part of student life at Langdon Park. Our careers guidance is delivered through a variety of workshops, talks from professionals, careers fairs, workplace visits, and one to one guidance interviews with careers advisors. In addition, we run our annual Volunteer Fair and Careers Fair in school. This gives students the opportunity to gain experience and explore different career paths.
