Careers education is embedded in our ‘Life’ programme and is delivered to all students. Good careers advice and education is essential in raising the aspirations and self-esteem of our young people.
We have key staff in school who can support and advise students on all aspects of careers guidance. Students have the opportunity to meet with highly qualified careers advisors who can draw on their expertise and provide high quality careers information, advice and guidance.
There is a careers office based in the academy and we also have a notice board which displays up to date information regarding college open evenings, apprenticeships and other career related information.
Students in Year 10 are given the opportunity to experience college taster days. During Year 11 students have access to workshops, presentations and careers events. There is also support with applications and CV writing as well as interview techniques. Students requiring support with choosing their options in Key Stage 4 are provided with access to careers interviews and discussions. Students and their parents/carers can also request interviews by contacting the relevant Learning Manager.
Our goal is to help and encourage our students to aim high and achieve their potential.
