Feeling confident that you are getting the best Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is really important.  At Brunel we couldn't agree more.  That is why we employ our own full-time, Careers & Employability Coach to work with all students in the Academy.  Their role is to provide impartial, objective advice and information to young people, and their parents, about the different pathways open to young people as they progress through their schooling.  You can find the Careers and Employability Coach, Craig Jordan, on the First Floor outside the Staff Room.
