Careers Education



Careers , education, information.advice and guidance (CEIAG)  is an essential part of the support we offer to students at Manchester Secondary PRU.  Effective careers support is a vital part of the curriculum and helps to prepare young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and expereinces they will encounter as they prepare for transition within the PRU or their transition to a post 16 destination and beyond.  As options for young people become more varied and complex , it is vital that we support our students to develop the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices for their future.
