The academy is committed to ensuring that each and every one of our students leaves us with the skills and attributes required to take their place in the world of work and further education. We are fully compliant with statutory guidance, and the following are embedded in our practice:

  • Students have the opportunity to access independent careers guidance (yr8-11)
  • Our policy statement on provider access enables opportunities for students to
    learn from providers about approved technical education qualifications or
    apprenticeships (yr8-11)
  • Provider visits are made available to all students in the relevant year group
  • Independent careers guidance provided is presented in an impartial manner,
    showing no bias or favouritism towards a particular institution, education or
    work option, and includes information on the full range of education or training
    options, including apprenticeships and technical education routes (yr10-11)
  • Where pupils have EHC plans, their annual reviews include a focus on
    adulthood, including employment (yr8-11)

The academy takes the views of stakeholders seriously, and every opportunity is used to seek feedback. Views of parents were collated at the recent year 11 Parents' Evening, and feedback is sought from students for all educational and career based visits. T

Careers Programme

Intent

Our aim is to improve the life chances of our students to enable them to become the leaders of tomorrow. Our CEIAG provision provide our students with opportunities to learn, demonstrate and evidence their employability character, enabling them to evolve successfully to take their next steps into employment or further study.

We prepare learners for future success in education, employment or training by providing unbiased information to all about potential next steps; high quality, up-to-date and locally relevant careers guidance and opportunities for good quality meaningful encounters with the world of work.

Learner access to 1:1 (level 6) impartial Personal Careers Guidance supports progression into the setting which is right for them.

Implementation

We recognise the most effective way to deliver careers education is to embed it within core teaching and learning activities, supported by a co-curriculum programme of activities. Any centrally delivered careers activities will aim to support curriculum delivery rather than provide a stand-alone careers education programme.

Impact

Successful careers education and guidance is reflected in NEET data.

Writing a CV

A CV is a short, factual document that sets out information about you, your education and work. Some employers will ask you to send a CV for a job or an apprenticeship vacancy when you apply.

Your CV should be:
• clear and readable - type it up on a computer, with clear headings and a readable font such as Arial
• short - one or two sides only
• truthful
• positive - only write about the things you can do.
Contact Information
Make sure you keep this up to date - for example, when you change your mobile number.
Personal Profile
A short summary about your skills and qualities.
Education
With the most recent first, list where you have studied and the qualifications you have got. Write ‘predicted’ if you have not yet got your grades.
Work Experience
If you haven’t done this through school, think about anything you could put here, such as babysitting or a paper round.
Hobbies and Interests
Include things you do in your spare time - especially if they show your motivation, commitment and initiative.
References
Details of two people who can tell an employer about you. Include a teacher from school and someone else - who is not a relative. You must get their permission to include their details.

These are words you could include in your CV, but try to think about other things you could say about yourself too. Don’t use words you are unsure about - check meanings if you need to.
