As a school we have a statutory and moral duty to provide students in all years a careers education, information, advice and guidance. Guidance takes place within the SMSC curriculum with support from, not only Form Tutors and their Heads of Year, but also all Heads of Department and their Curriculum team via their schemes of work which include information given to all students about possible careers in their subject areas.
One to one interviews are allocated to groups of students with an independent advisor who visits school once a week. Please liaise with Miss H Sherriff if you would like to have an interview. Interview slots are booked on a weekly basis and last 40 minutes.
Careers preparation, called Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is taught to all years within the school.
The academy will assess the impact of the careers programme through such things as student voice, statistical analysis of work experience placements and NEET figures. From our 2022 cohort 97.9% of students went onto Full Time Education or Employment.
