Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

Wirral Met College has a vision to be an inclusive, outstanding college, with a mission to enhance the economic prosperity of young people, adults and employers through high quality, work-related education and training.

Wirral Met is committed to offering a Careers Education and Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) service which is accessible to all of our students.

This service seeks to ensure that all students are fully equipped with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to live confidently, effectively and independently both at home and in work. The service is delivered by College staff equipped with relevant skills and experience. Wirral Met is accredited to the matrix standard and has adopted the Gatsby Benchmarks to measure the results and impact of the service. 

Our website incorporates a free careers information tool called Career Explorer which links to the Government’s ‘lmiforall’ careers information which provides information on the skills required for different career roles, the potential salary or wage you could earn, the growth or decline of jobs in the Liverpool City Region and the types of qualifications you would need to progress into the role.  Our website incorporates the option to search for careers and for courses; easily accessible through our homepage and through individual subject area / career route webpages.

Student Advisers are available to provide impartial information, advice and guidance to help you identify and choose the best career path to meet your individual needs.

For students interested in researching apprenticeships or university level / Higher Education programmes, Wirral Met has invested in the Unifrog online service to provide existing students with support when planning their progression from further education courses onto higher levels.
