Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) 

 The Academy’s aim is for all pupils to have a greater depth of understanding about the world of work and have interaction with different career pathways during their time at the Academy. 

The Academy recognises the importance of equipping our pupils with the knowledge and skills they will need to progress in life and in the world of work. The CEIAG programme at Fulwood Academy makes sure that each year group has at least one interaction per year with a college, a university and a business: as well as further drop in opportunities available to all.
