Our Careers Programme

All Pupils at Adelaide Heath Academy access a careers programme that supports pupils to make informed, realistic and intelligent decisions at the next stage of their education, employment or training.  

The careers section of our website has information for Pupils, Parents, Staff and Employers. We also send out termly Careers Newsletters and there is a section on our whole school School Newsletter. Careers information and news can also be accessed through our social media pages.

Pupils have access to a well stocked Careers Library which includes College and University Prospectuses and Careers Guides. How2Become have very generously donated a series of careers books and have a fantastic website with lots of great advice.  www.how2become.com

Careers education and guidance programmes make a major contribution to preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.

A planned progressive programme of activities supports them in choosing KS4 & KS5 pathways that suit their interests and abilities and help them to follow a career path and sustain employability throughout their working lives.

Adelaide Heath Academy has adopted the Careers Guidance and statutory requirements issued by the Department of Education in December 2017. We are using the Gatsby Benchmarks to assess, review and develop our Careers Education programme.

Adelaide Heath Academy offers a comprehensive and bespoke CEIAG provision for all pupils.

Miss April Allcock delivers impartial advice and guidance to pupil in KS3, KS4 and KS5. This year that will also be supported by Career Connect. There are additional meetings if pupils, parents or other staff request it. There is also additional support from the Local Authority for all pupils regarding transition,

We work closely with the Local Education Partnership.
