1:1 meetings take place with students to discuss a full range of opportunities available to them and students are given an Individual Action Plan to help them stay focused and achieve their goals.

At Hillsview we also have excellent working partnerships with local businesses including Middlesbrough Football Club, High Tide Foundation, PD Ports and Barclays Bank to name but a few.

Measuring impact - we track student progression at age 16 and 18 to measure the impact of our CEIAG programme. The impact of our CEIAG delivery will be measured by the activities and opportunities offered to the students as well as tracking their future destinations and NEETS.
