Career Guidance

The Academy values the importance of preparing students for the world of work and their future careers.  We want our students to aspire to achieve and be the best and it is important that they are aware of the opportunities that exist for them.

Careers Guidance is facilitated by our Careers Leader, Mrs Joanne Marshall, who supports and advises students across all year groups. offering help and advice in different areas including careers, decision making, options around education, apprenticeships, employment and training. 

Careers provision outline for 2018/19

Below is our current plan for the year. It is not an exhaustive list and much of our Well Being programme also crosses over with careers provision. During every school year new opportunities also arise that we will take advantage of and deliver to our students to ensure we meet the Gatsby benchmarks which must be fully met by 2020.
