CEIAG - CareersThe world of higher education and employment has become extremely competitive in the 21st century and new careers and interesting opportunities are becoming available at an ever increasing rate.
The CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) department at DLD aims to ensure that our students are thoroughly prepared to meet the career challenges ahead of them.
We help students to discover, for themselves, the right paths for their future and equip them with the skills they need in order to search out and make the most of career opportunities wherever they are in the world. We show them how to sift through labour market information and investigate progression routes to further education, training and employment.
The Careers programme at DLD offers a high-quality, impartial and up-to-date programme of information and guidance. Speakers (ranging from professionals to former students) are invited to the College. We attend careers fairs and conferences, and organise a variety of Careers-related activities ourselves. Workshops on CV writing and interview techniques are provided, and through our exploration of work-related learning, students are helped to find work experience and placements at the end of Year 12 or take part in work shadowing.
We also provide:
• One-to-one, personalised support and Individual Careers Plans (ICPs)
• Careers guidance as a component of the SMSC programme
