Careers Information, Advice & Guidance and Student Progression

Careers Information, Advice & Guidance

The idea of a ‘job for life’  has disappeared, with many people working in jobs that simply didn't exist only 5-10 years ago.  It is important to recognise the exciting new opportunities that are available and to gain the knowledge, skills and expertise that will enable students to work in those new areas.

Careers Information, Advice and Guidance is an important part of a students' education at the Academy.  Students receive the opportunity to develop their understanding of careers and future pathways through 1-to-1 meetings and small group work with Mrs Tannock, a Careers Adviser appointed by the Harris Federation to work with students, and our Careers Lead Mr Phil Wilson, on career planning.

There are many issues that often crop up in interviews, such as students readying themselves for the job market, students looking at University, students considering Apprenticeships or even self-employment? Often students aren’t sure what further learning they will need to be able to do a particular career, many students are really confused over what type of career would even suit them?

These, and many other issues, form the basis of careers guidance at the Academy.  As well as providing bespoke careers advice and guidance, Mrs Tannock also works with the Academy to develop the careers education programme across all years.

Meetings with Mrs Tannock can be arranged through the Academy Reception.  Or, if you have access to email, she can be contacted directly on lesley.tannock@harrisfederation.org.uk.

The full Academy policy for Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance and Work Related Learning can be found on the Teaching & Learning page of the Key Information & Policies section of the website.

Student Progression & Destinations

Our students progress into a range of options after Year 11 or Year 13; usually Sixth Form or College, University or Apprenticeships.  We support them with their decision making and applications.

The Academy recognises the importance of employability learning, and as part of this Year 10 and Year 12 students are supported to find work experience with local and city based employers.  This enables them to get a better understanding of professional work environments, make well informed decisions and be more successful in their job and apprenticeship hunts.

Details of the progression for our students can be found in the diagrams below.
