Sacred Heart was awarded Investors in Careers Status in 2014. We were reassessed in April 2017 and are proud of the statement written in the report which states that we are “an example of very best practice to any school looking to develop any aspect of their CEIAG programme”.

What is Investors In Careers?

Investor in Careers is a Licensed Awarding Body for the Quality in Careers Standard award, which showcases and supports the management of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG).

From 31st March 2017, all careers standard awards will now follow a national set of standards – the Quality in Careers Standard. Investor in Careers is proud to be one of only 12 Licensed Awarding Bodies in England & Wales.

Investor in Careers is designed to raise the standard of CEIAG provision delivered by schools and colleges nationally. It provides a clear framework for meeting statutory guidance and it supports preparation for Ofsted by enabling schools and colleges to demonstrate how they are meeting the requirement of preparing students for the next stage in their journey.

All our Investor in Careers holders have demonstrated a commitment to provide impartial, independent careers education, information, advice and guidance to all young people.

The standard places high value on work related learning and employability skills and seeks to support the management of CEIAG delivery. It is the most widely used quality award of its kind nationally.

This really is one of the highest accolades an organisation can receive for excellence in this area of work and is definitely something the award holder can be very proud of. The Quality in Careers Standard is about improving students’ awareness of opportunities, raising their aspirations and working with them to ensure they achieve their full potential.
