Our careers programme thoroughly prepares students for university and the world of work. We help students develop the skills and knowledge needed for the fast-changing job market, and provide them with a exciting range of opportunities to engage with employers, further education providers and higher education institutions throughout their time at the Academy.
Assistant Principal - Humanities & Careers
Our programme aims to meet all of the 'Gatsby Benchmarks' – a nationally recognised framework for world-class careers guidance – through the following strategic adjectives:
- Organise parent engagement events to inform parents about today's job market and world of work, and how to advise their children on these topics.
- Individually track every pupil's progress through the careers curriculum, including the trips and activities they take part in.
- Make time for active reflection after each trip and activity, so that each pupil is continually evolving their vision for their future.
