The Careers Department at Oakgrove Integrated College aims to give our pupils a wide range of learning opportunities and experiences that are both relevant and enriching when it comes to preparing our pupils for the world of work. We aim to do this by working together as a school and by working in partnership with outside organizations.


The 3 pillars of CEIAG are:-


  • Self-awareness

  • Career exploration

  • Career management


These are covered in the following strands:-


  • Education (Gatsby 1)

  • Information (Gatsby 2)

  • Advice and Guidance (Gatsby 3,4,8)

  • Employability skills (Gatsby 1,2,3,5,6,8)

  • Work-related learning (Gatsby 5,6,7)


CEIAG at Oakgrove works to the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks

2 Learning from Career/ LMI

3 Addressing needs of each pupil
