At Saint Edmund Arrowsmith we offer all of our pupils a comprehensive programme of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance. Our CEIAG programme incorporates one to one guidance interviews, group sessions, guest speakers, targeted enrichment activities in and out of school and much more. Pupils also have a sequence of specialised Careers lessons as part of the Citizenship Programme of Study. Please see below for further details of our careers programme within Citizenship.

Our Careers Adviser, Andrea Cleary, provides pupils with independent information, advice and guidance regarding their plans after Year 11 including college courses, apprenticeships and personal development opportunities as well as career ideas.

Pupils can request an interview by speaking directly with Andrea, their form tutor, Year Manager or Progress Leader. Pupils are also welcome to drop in at lunch and break times (Thursday and Friday) for advice. The Careers Area is on the mezzanine, next to the Lecture Theatre.

If you wish to contact Andrea Cleary, please email

Our named Careers Leader is Mrs H. Charnley (Assistant Headteacher). To contact Mrs Charnley, please call 0151 4778770 or email
