In March the Winsford Academy was awarded Level 2 Inspiring IAG status.
This shows that the Academy is committed to delivering high quality Career Education, Information, Advice and Guidance and this has been recognised by a nationally awarding body.
It recognises the work done through assemblies, PHSE, Form tutors and Departments in ensuring we invest in the career prospects of the pupils and work together with external providers and local employers to give pupils the opportunities to visit employers and hear first hand experiences of their employees.
We have an ongoing action plan and are continually striving to improve our service to the young people.
Our next goal is Level 3 within the next 12 months.
In Y7 we aim to introduce the concept of carers career planning and to give pupils the opportunity to explore a range of industry sectors and careers within those industries.
Career Education is being embedded through Form Time activities. Pupils make their Option choices in Y8 and it is important that they understand the range of qualifications offered by the Academy as well as the subject choices.
Pupils have started their GCSE Options and it is important that they can understand the link between a good education and a fulfilling career.
Pupils in Y10 are beginning to think about their next steps and this is something we actively encourage. Pupils are encouraged to talk about Career plans and to do some follow up research, all of which is recorded and evaluated by the pupil and the adviser at their next meeting.
This is the year for decision making and applications for Post 16. Pupils are provided with opportunities to listen to and meet staff from our partner providers and are actively encouraged to attend Open Evenings and apply for courses.
