Work Experience Roll Out
This academic year sees the rollout of our new Work Experience Programme for students in years 10 and 12. The programme allows students the opportunity to develop key transferable workplace skills as they develop a clearer understanding of their career aspirations. Students will leave the academy to join businesses and participate in a variety of workplace activities. Those students unable to leave the academy will participate in employability skills training sessions on site.
Unifrog for All
This academic year we have rolled out the Unifrog portal for all students from year 7 to 13. The portal is a one stop shop helping our students develop key competencies, record achievements and develop their own career and further study roadmaps.
Every student has their own individual login which can be accessed via the Unifrog website at www.Unifrog.org
Impartial Careers Guidance
Our Careers Advisor, in collaboration with the Education Development Trust, meets with every year 11 and year 13 student to discuss their hopes for the future and provide a tailored action plan. After all year 11 and 13 students have been seen, appointments will be made available for the rest of the school by request.
This is an important step in ensuring that every student receives tailor made, impartial advice and guidance, in addition to this students are also able to request time with our Careers Lead to gain additional support.
