Our Careers Program
Meadows school follows a Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) program which, we believe, makes a major contribution in preparing young people for opportunities, responsibilities and experience of life. They help young people make decisions and manage transitions as learners and workers. It is vital that all 11-16 year old’s have the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices. We strive at all times to conform to the current “best practices” in Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance laid down by the government.
Meadows school is committed to providing a planned Programme for all students in Years 7-11, in partnership with outside agencies (Colleges, 6th Forms, Apprenticeship providers, Positive Steps and Universities). For this reason we have now signed up to complete the IAG award.

What is Inspiring IAG Award?
Inspiring IAG has been designed to provide a good practice framework and recognition of high quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) for organisations that are providing support services for young people.
It has been written and updated by CEIAG specialists across the ten Local Authority areas of Greater Manchester in consultation with schools, colleges, learning providers, employers and local authority representatives.
Inspiring IAG is a three stage process, Bronze Standard, Silver Standard and Gold Award. Organisations progress through each stage where it is validated and assessed. The process helps organisations to identify areas for development as well as recognising good practice in CEIAG. Six key areas run through each stage of the award, each underpinned by the principles of equality and diversity and raising aspirations.
