Careers, Education, Information, and Guidance (CEIAG)
At OASB, our vision is that every young person has an opportunity to progress into employment, and to have a career with prospects. We aim for every student to develop strong values and characteristics that ensure they have happy and fulfilled lives. Our careers curriculum ensures that students are given the necessary skills and knowledge to achieve this. Students are informed about all educational and career options available to them at the end of Year 11 or Year 13, to allow students and families to make informed decisions.
OASB’s careers programme aims to ensure that students have the knowledge and ability to access the pathway to their dream job. Students are exposed to a broad range of jobs and industries, with students in years 7 to 13 undertaking programmes with external professionals. OASB is currently working with PWC, Facebook, Build Studios as well as supporting the Oasis Waterloo Hub and volunteering at Oasis Academy Johanna. These programmes provide students with the opportunity to engage with professionals, discover future careers paths and introduce careers related skills such as interview and assessment techniques and preparation. The most recent careers plan can be found here
Additionally, using a careers bank of volunteers, staff have access to a range of professionals from a variety of industries who can be invited to speak in assemblies or lessons about their career, strengthening links between the current curriculum and future careers. Careers bank volunteers also provide smaller group/1 – 1 talks to students who express an interest in a particular field.
