CEIAG

Careers Education Information and Guidance (CEIAG) at KHB.

We recognise that it is essential to learn about careers and the world of work as well as have the opportunity to develop employability skills alongside your traditional academic education. Our CEIAG programme provides you with information and guidance throughout your time here at Kings Heath Boys to ensure that you are equipped to make decisions about your future pathways that are based on your education and experiences.  All students will also have access to one to one advice and guidance and access to different online resources to support you in making your choices.

At KHB we are developing our programme to ensure we achieve the Gatsby Benchmarks by 2020 and we also map against the DfE Careers Guidance 2019 and the CDI Framework for Careers, Employability and Enterprise Education.
