The Careers Hub is responsible for Impartial Information, Advice and Guidance (IIAG) across the Academy. We organise work experience, guide students with accurate careers and course information, promote self-reflection and self-understanding. Developing cross-curricular structures to help students understand how to access careers and courses at a variety of levels is also an important part of our work.

We endeavour to help students with application and interview techniques as well as career and course research; and we actively promote the development and knowledge of transferable skills within subject areas.

We use the Gatsby Benchmarks in unison with the Compass Tool to evaluate our programme to ensure it meets the required standards. We have also been assessed by OFSTED (Outstanding) and DCC (5 Star Award) for excellent practice.

We are open to providers of apprenticeships, vocational courses, technical education and other routes. If you would like to present to students about your opportunities please read our policy on provider awareness here.

Baron Miles is the member of staff responsible for Careers Education at the Academy.

Sally Baker is a Careers Advisor along with Baron.

Marcel Ciantar is the Centre of Excellence for Industrial Liaison Director.

PERSONALITY TESTING CAREERS SITES:

Based on the classic Myers-Briggs or Holland Code tests, students can use these quizzes to get them thinking about different careers in a fun and engaging way. Answering the questions encourages students to reflect on their likes, dislikes and what they’re good at, making the test a valuable tool to use with KS3 & 4 as well as KS5.

How does it work?
Once students have taken the quiz, they’re shown their closest match personality type as well as similar profiles. We’re really keen not to pigeonhole students so as well as showing similar personality types, we also suggest they retake the test every 6 months. This is to make sure students view their personality type as one aspect of a holistic view of themselves, rather than putting them in a box.
