The Career Zone

What are you here for?

The CCA Way leads to successful employment....

...and this starts with our fantastic career zone team and resources. We offer regular employer contact and information, advice and guidance for all students from year 7 to 13.

Highlights in the careers education calendar include the annual careers fair, termly employability days and year 10 work experience and the year 11 mock interviews.

Students receive comprehensive IAG at key transition points, including the key stage 3 options, post-16 pathways selection process and post-18 planning, including information about both apprenticeship and university pathways.

Careers activities are also built into the tutor time programme, with year 10 and 11 students building their evidence of the skills they will need for their future in their employability portfolios.

In addition to this, all students in key stage 3 and 4 have access to the Kudos software to research their careers interesting and post-16 opportunities. At key stage 5, we use the Unifrog package to enable students to search for the latest local and national apprenticeship vacancies, as well as searching for the best university courses matched to the student's interests and aspirations.
