Academy careers strategy 2020 -2022
The Macclesfield Academy is fully committed to ensuring that all of our students acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to manage their learning and career progression. The Academy has already established a range of effective careers guidance activities which we hope will guide support our students to achieve positive destinations such as A ‘levels, Higher Education, Apprenticeships, Technical routes or Employment.
This careers strategy sets out The Academy’s the activities and participation opportunities that already are, or will be available to, our students. The aim is to ensure that students are fully prepared for and informed effectively about their next steps and can therefore aspire to achieve their full potential.
To support the implementation of this strategy The Academy will work alongside a number of external agencies and organisations. These partnerships will include:
Our aim is to prepare students for life, by making them inquisitive young adults with the determination and resilience to succeed. We also want students to be planning their Post 16 journey throughout their time at the Academy, so we have built our careers advice and guidance programme into all years from 7 to 11.
We currently engage a fully qualified and independent careers advisor who works with individuals and groups throughout the academic year. They are also part of the whole school planning and delivery programme delivered through PSHEE.
Our programme contains the following strands:
Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance overview by year group
The Cheshire and Warrington Pledge are helping us to work towards the embedding of the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks, as well as reviewing the impact of our programme and suggesting improvements to the support and guidance we offer all students.
