Careers at Grace Academy

 

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at Grace Academy is tailored

to individual needs and aimed at widening student’s horizons, challenging stereotypes, and

raising aspirations to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to make

transitions that allow for successful future employment outcomes. This commitment

includes positively supporting social mobility to ensure improved opportunities for all

students. We are committed to working towards all the Gatsby benchmarks so that every

student can have the right information, right skills, and right experiences to build a

rewarding career.

 

We aim to ensure that the careers provision is both effective and impartial with the equality

of opportunity so every student can benefit. To support this and in line with statutory

responsibilities, we will use the Gatsby Benchmarks for “Good Careers Guidance” as our

measure and careers activities will be designed to meet them. We ensure that:

All students have access to independent career guidance including access to external

sources of information and the full range of education and training Post 16 and

beyond: apprenticeships (including technical, higher and degree apprenticeships), A

Level, vocational college courses, T Level training and university pathways.

That every student in year 11 will have a one-to-one careers interview that is

tailored to their needs and is with a Level 6 qualified careers advisor.

The careers programme of activities from year 7 to 11 fully meet the career

requirements of each stage and offers equable opportunity.

The career programme engages students with the width and knowledge of the

various career learning opportunities available to them and how an understanding of

their knowledge and skills will enable them to find suitable careers.
