Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at Aylesbury Grammar School

Our Higher Education and Careers Leader is Mrs Laura Adams: careers@ags.bucks.sch.uk

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is integral to the education of our students at Aylesbury Grammar School. Our provision for careers education is delivered through curriculum learning, dedicated talks, workshops and events, as well as one-to-one or group meetings with staff and the independent Adviza team.

AGS is committed to providing all students in Years 7 – 13 with a programme of careers activities and supporting activity in line with the eight Gatsby benchmarks. These benchmarks are intended to ensure best practice and to meet the requirements of the Department for Education’s statutory guidance 2018.
