Welcome our first CEIAG @ Chorlton High School bulletin. These bulletins are dedicated to all our provision around careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) at Chorlton High School. Through these bulletins we celebrate recent events, draw attention to appropriate opportunities for students throughout our school and signpost CEIAG for both students and parents.
Our designated Careers Lead is Miss C Slinger. Email email@example.com
What’s been going on?
This term Year 11 have been receiving a wide range of CEIAG to help support their Post-16 choices.
- We have linked up with our local Sixth form and College providers to offer students virtual opportunities to find out more about Post-16 study. This was supported by our virtual Post-16 event which took place in October, information is still available on our website. Virtual Post 16 Evening
- During life skills lessons, students have worked on perfecting their personal statements to send off to colleges and have recently taken part in a session on interview skills.
- Our Careers Advisor, Ms Patrick has been busy meeting with Year 11 students for their 1:1 interview, she will continue to see students next term and can be contacted via ‘chat’ on MS Teams for any enquiries.
We have also been catching up with the destinations of our Alumni Class of 2020

Sector Spotlight – Health and Social Care
Did you know?
- Health and social care is one of Greater Manchester’s key employment sectors.
- Hip replacement surgery, bionic eye implants and IVF fertility treatment were all pioneered in Manchester.
- 70% of the UK’s clinical lab scientists are trained in Manchester.
- The Health and Social Care sector consists of any organisation which provides healthcare and specialist support and social care support to people. In short, it includes any organisation or service which helps people live more independent, healthier lives.
- In the NHS alone there are over 350 careers to choose from. If you are interested in a career in Health & Social care the NHS website stepintothenhs.nhs.uk is a brilliant place to start your research.
Alumni Profile – Jaya Vyas
We are always looking to connect with our Alumni to find out what our past students have been doing since they left Chorlton High School. Here, we talk to former student Jaya Vyas who left in 2017.
What are you doing now and what have you done since leaving Chorlton High School?
- I went on to complete A Levels at Loreto College in Sociology, History and English Literature.
- Following this I got accepted into the University of Birmingham where I am currently in my second year doing Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences, with a major in Sociology. Next year I will study abroad at either an Australian or Canadian University.
What are you aiming to do once you finish university?
- I want to get experience working in the media sector, to hopefully progress into roles such as investigative journalism or presenting. I also want to travel abroad and gain experience working in a different country.
What advice would you give to students in Chorlton High School now?
- With regards to school work, I would say that establishing the right revision and work techniques that work for you early on, is essential. This will be so beneficial when it comes to doing exams and tests as your revision and work will be more focussed and effective.
- My most important piece of advice is to prioritise your own happiness and wellbeing. Make the most of the five years because they go past so quickly.
