Careers Strategy 2021-2022
Careers Education, Information and Guidance (CEIAG) along with working with employers has a large impact on preparing students for post 16 education and the working world.
The Academy provides impartial information, advice and guidance on careers education as well as employability skills that students can use to help them effectively plan for their future.
This involves a high level of support around higher education, apprenticeships and employment. The aim is to ensure all pupils secure the right courses at the right level to sustain post-16 destinations.

Some Key Facts about Leadership and Management
The academy places a premium on the design and delivery of high quality CEIAG for all students at KS3 and KS4.
The Careers Leader has leadership and management of CEIAG and is supported by a senior member of staff on raising participation and ensuring all students have a high level of careers education whilst at the academy.
The academy provides Independent Careers Advice from a Level 6 qualified Careers Adviser and all students will have at least one meeting with the Careers Adviser before they leave in year 11. The role of the Careers Adviser is to provide impartial information, advice and guidance for students and support the application process and planning of post-16 options.
The academy works closely with external providers such as The University of Portsmouth, The University of Chichester, Havant & South Downs College, Highbury College and Portsmouth College, and a number of other local colleges to ensure that student transition is smooth and that students have a good knowledge of the courses and training that each establishment provides. All members of staff are expected to contribute to CEIAG through their roles as tutors and subject leaders.
