Careers at Grace Academy
Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at Grace Academy is tailored to individual needs and aimed at widening student’s horizons, challenging stereotypes, and raising aspirations to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to make transitions that allow for successful future employment outcomes. This commitment includes positively supporting social mobility to ensure improved opportunities for all students. We are committed to working towards all the Gatsby benchmarks so that every student can have the right information, right skills, and right experiences to build a rewarding career.
We aim to ensure that the careers provision is both effective and impartial with the equality of opportunity so every student can benefit. To support this and in line with statutory responsibilities, we will use the Gatsby Benchmarks for “Good Careers Guidance” as our measure and careers activities will be designed to meet them. We ensure that:
- All students have access to independent career guidance including access to external sources of information and the full range of education and training Post 16 and beyond: apprenticeships (including technical, higher and degree apprenticeships), A Level, vocational college courses, T Level training and university pathways.
- That every student in year 11 will have a one-to-one careers interview that is tailored to their needs and is with a Level 6 qualified careers advisor.
- The careers programme of activities from year 7 to 11 fully meet the career requirements of each stage and offers equable opportunity.
- The career programme engages students with the width and knowledge of the various career learning opportunities available to them and how an understanding of their knowledge and skills will enable them to find suitable careers.

As parents/carers, we are sometimes expected to have all the answers, but in a constantly evolving world it can be a struggle to keep up with the latest options for our children.
Are apprenticeships right for your child? Should they be considering A-levels, BTECs or T-levels?
At Grace Academy, we believe in supporting our families, not just our
