A new Careers team is now in place here at Newark Academy and our main aim is to drive aspirations of all students, across each year group, by developing a programme of careers education, information, and providing bespoke guidance and advice to all.
Our main priorities for this year will be to:
- Liaise with primary schools and introduce students from year 6-11 to a variety of jobs.
- Offer direction for year 11 students and help raise their awareness of different routes into higher education: sixth form, college and apprenticeships.
- Deliver professional careers guidance throughout the year.
- Provide guidance and support from all departments for subject-specific pathways into careers.
- Arrange university talks and visits.
- Organise mock interviews for year 11.
Our careers programme will support self-development and career exploration to ensure that students understand themselves and the influences upon them. This programme will also support students to make valuable decisions about routes and pathways and help them explore whether they have the necessary skills to equip them for employment.
