Planning your career journey is important, especially if you would like a smooth ride into your chosen career and/or higher education. The earlier you start thinking and planning your ideal career, the better. At JMA, we start exploring CIAG in year 7 and continue our journey through until the day you leave school, whether that is at the end of year 11 or year 13.
At school and at home, you will be expected to work on your ‘start’ profiles. Upload all CIAG documents to keep everything in one place.
Start includes the following:
A student profile: You build your profile and access personalised study and career information.
Modules: activities to guide you through the information on Start at the right time.
Up to date information: engaging content on what to study, where to learn and the world of work.
Locker: an online record of achievement to evidence skills for future applications and CVs.
Employability action plan: You can set goals and stay in control of their career planning.
Below are a variety of links that will help support you on your journey.

How Can I Gain Work Experience?
In year 10 everyone will take part in work experience. This will really improve your chances of getting into a job when you leave school. Not only will it help support you, but it will also teach you valid skills and qualities needed to be successful in that industry. It may even tell you if that job is really for you or not.
To stand out even further though, we advise you take up as much work experience s possible, in many different industries.
