At Winterbourne Academy we provide a comprehensive Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme for every year group.
Most people spend many years of their life in a working environment and it is therefore important to equip our students with the necessary skills for them to make decisions about their future, to know how and where to access information and to link subject areas and qualifications with possible careers.
Good quality Careers Education will raise the aspirations of and help our students to become effective career planners and managers of their own progression through learning and work. It will increase motivation by linking activities in school with preparation for life Post 16 and Post 18. By providing quality information, advice and guidance, our aim is to raise students’ aspirations and ambitions for their futures and increase confidence, whilst offering equality of opportunity for all.
Our careers programme is supported by our business volunteers from the local area who regularly participate in the careers activities, provide Industry talks and workshops and share their knowledge and skills with students. We run regular Business Networking events throughout the year to recruit Business volunteers and further develop our existing Business links. If you have your own business or work in an organisation and are interested in coming along to one of our events, please contact Sue Happy who works in a shared post with Patchway Community School, as our Careers and Partnership Coordinator at Sue.Happy@winterbourneacademy.org.uk
