Careers & Employability

Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance (CEIAG)

In order to prepare our students for the various aspects of adult life, particularly the world of work, we provide a wide range of experiences and opportunities that are careers education and employability/transferable skills based. All students in all years will take part in a range of activities each year and will also have access to careers advice and guidance should they require it.

Individual careers interviews will be organised for those students who are at crucial decision making stages (especially transitions periods), allowing them access to impartial advice and guidance for support.

  • Access to on-line resources, including eClips (subscription has been organised) (All year groups)
  • Access to printed careers information and other IAG materials in the Learning Resource Centre (All year groups)
  • Tutor time activities (All year groups)

  • Year 10 work experience (also offered at KS5 for vocational courses)
  • Opportunities to take part in various projects with local, regional and national employers (this includes work around enterprise and entrepreneurial programmes)
  • Pathway support – when students leave the Academy, they will be monitored and supported for at least 12 months
