Careers Advice

At EGA we offer independent and impartial careers education, EGA acknowledge and support the development of high aspirations among our young people. This is done by providing each and every student from Year 7 to 11 with well-informed advice about the future, that breaks barriers and stereotypes and encourages a flexible and ambitious approach.

Our Careers Lead is Razziya Siddique. She will be responsible for providing current information, advice and guidance to all students through one-to-one drop in sessions at lunch and after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Parents and carers can also contact her.

Telephone: 02078370739

Email: razziya.siddique@egas.islington.sch.uk

Training providers and institutions are welcome to contact Ms Siddique directly to arrange presentations and involvement with careers at EGA.

EGA are currently using a software tool called Uniforg. Unifrog will enable your daughter to gain access to current and relevant information on colleges, universities, careers and qualifications. With the use of Unifrog, students can develop a portfolio and receive tailored advice on where to go next. With support from staff and online tools, through work related learning, students receive the accurate skills for the future and develop their knowledge on career choices, through CV writing and job and college applications.

Parent Seminar on Thursday 20th June 2pm-3pm

On Thursday 20th June, we are holding the first of a series of seminars for parents.  A particular focus will be on keeping your daughter safe in the wider community.  Given the increase in the number of hate crimes being reported in recent years, we feel a duty to equip and empower our families with knowledge about where to access support. The first seminar will have a particular focus on tackling the Islamophobia that is often experienced in the wake of terror attacks, but will have advice relevant to all communities. It will include speakers from different organisations, community leaders, and a representative from the Metropolitan Police, who will address this issue and provide practical steps on how to stay safe and who you can turn to in order to get support. There will also be an opportunity in the end to ask questions to the panel.   If you are planning to attend this seminar, please could you RSVP by asking your daughter to return to the reply slip to the office, or by calling reception.  We need to have an idea of numbers so we can organise refreshments and an appropriate sized room.  We are also exploring panels to provide advice and support for other groups: those that experience discrimination or hate crime because of their race, gender, sexuality or disability. Suggestions from families on other topics that it would be helpful for us to arrange parent seminars on are very welcome.  Please email them to admin@egas.org.uk or call reception.
