Careers Education, Information and Guidance (CEIAG) and Work Related Learning (WRL)
Providing the knowledge and tools to progress into a rich and fulfilling career that can make a difference is at the heart of our careers programme.
Through a planned programme of activities, Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (‘CEIAG’) and Work-related Learning (‘WRL’), Harris Academy Wimbledon will help all students take their place as suitably qualified and responsible adults within society. The focus is upon career and option choices, raising the aspirations and achievement of individual students and equipping them with skills, attitudes, knowledge and understanding as a foundation for managing their lifelong career and learning.
These activities and events are unbiased, impartial and based on the individual needs of each student. We provide a varied programme that meets individuals’ needs working in partnership with our Federation Careers Advisor, parents, carers and teachers and external employers and training providers.
External organisations, employers, employees, Further Education and Higher Education providers are welcome to contribute towards our Career Programme. Please contact the Academy’s Careers Leader, Mr Ross Arnold, via email (email@example.com) or phone (020 3962 4300). Please see the Careers Information for Employers and Providers’ at the bottom of the webpage for more details.
Requests will be considered in line with our safeguarding policy.
At the Academy, we use Unifrog to support the delivery of CEIAG. Unifrog is a complete destinations platform that allows students to search for opportunities and make applications for their next steps. Both students and parents have access to Unifrog, enabling ready access to labour market information, personality profiles and routes into careers and training.

Labour Market Information
Careerometer can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations, help you learn about different occupations and identify potential careers.
It provides access to a selection of UK headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects for different occupations, as well as description of the occupation.
Simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you. You can then look up another two occupations and compare. You can also select ‘display the UK average’ and compare the information with the occupation you have selected.
