Careers Support

We are passionate about giving our students the best possible advice and guidance for their futures. We provide this guidance through a variety of ways, including from our own highly trained and experienced staff along with making use of expertise from other organisations.

We believe that students should have the opportunity to see the world of work; both within their curriculum providing real examples of work based activity and relevance, as well as being able to speak to people from across a diverse range of different work settings.

Combined with the guidance provided within the curriculum, we  help give intensive careers related guidance to students in Year 11. This includes; pratice interviews,  visit to Universities and the Where Next conference and making use of our extensive connections to bring professionals into the Academy.

We make use of online learning tools for careers related guidance, and have provided links here to specific sites which we believe are informative and suitable for young people thinking about their futures.
