Careers Education

Welcome to Student Careers

Welcome to the Student Careers pages at Four Dwellings Academy. We see this area as so important that we have given it real prominence and its own section on our website.

At Four Dwellings Academy we are committed to providing our students with a comprehensive programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) and work related learning (WRL) for all students in years 7 – 11.

Four Dwellings Academy endeavours to work towards the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s benchmarks to develop and improve careers provision, within DFE (Department for Education)Careers guidance and access for education and training providers (October 2018) and other good practice guidance from the Department of Education, Ofsted and other relevant bodies.

Careers and work related education is an important part of the wider curriculum that we offer within the academy to our students.

We believe that every individual should be prepared for the opportunities, experiences and responsibilities of adult life and that this preparation should be an important and distinctive element of the curriculum.

Our Careers Education Programme provides students with skills, knowledge and support and to experience the world of work to enable them to make informed career choices.

Another important element for our students is the access to independent and impartial advice and guidance, which supports them in broadening their horizons, raising aspirations and reaching their own careers aspirations.

This information has been pulled together in one place so that students and parents can access the information easily to assist the reader.

As highlighted above students will be making important pathway and career choices which will ultimately impact on their life. It is essential that parents and carers play an active role in exploring the options and choices which are best for their child.
