The academy is delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Humber Gold Standard Award for the Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) we provide for all students. The in-depth and very rigorous assessment focused on 80 standards across 8 different modules and took place during our Raising Aspirations Day in February.
Our Raising Aspirations Days provide students from each year group the opportunity to follow a personalised timetable, focusing on a variety of careers activities, tasks and workshops in order to give them a greater insight into the potential options that are available to them in the future. The report was able to capture the success of these days, stating ‘The Raising Aspirations Days are a triumph of organisation and almost single-handedly deliver an effective CEIAG programme. The attention that goes in to differentiating the activities within the days to meet individuals’ needs is commendable.’
In addition to our Raising Aspirations Days, students have many other opportunities throughout the year to develop their knowledge and understanding of career pathways including individual careers interviews with local colleges and careers advisors, a tutor programme that focuses on career development, numerous trips and visits, and many other careers events held within and beyond the academy. We encourage all of our students to ‘dream big’ and work hard in order to achieve their goals.
