Careers Education, Information and Guidance
To support careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) at the academy we have developed a dedicated careers SharePoint where you will find links and articles to a whole range of career related information.
In a rapidly changing world careers education has never been more important and here at the National, all students receive careers related education via their Personal Development lessons.
From year 7, this features lessons on the importance of education in general and how it can inform career choice, through to advice and guidance in year’s 11 and 13 on college and university choice.
We have a simple motto: no student left behind; with this in mind guidance is personal and impartial and available to all students. The Careers SharePoint features local and national careers events and as well details about work experience opportunities. There are also articles on such things as CV writing and social media use. This is a work in progress so do drop in regularly to see what’s new and if there’s anything you want to see that isn’t featured, simply drop us a line.
Year 12 students who continue their studies into the sixth form undertake a one-week work experience placement as part of our year 12 programme – this is scheduled to take place after AS examinations.
These work experience placements should be related to your career of choice or the education pathway you wish to follow. Students will be expected to select, apply and interview for roles, and represent both yourself and your academy in a professional, business-like manner. Placements normally take place in July.
