Careers, Employability and Enterprise
Chapeltown Academy provides its students with Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG). Our careers programme aims to support students to develop their academic, social and employability skills needed for lifelong success in a diverse and changing world of work. Through impartial careers guidance, we will encourage all students to have high aspirations for their careers, and build self-confidence.
As part of Minerva learning trust, schools are working together to pool resources and experience to offer greater support to all of our young people.
Careers guidance can take many forms. It is delivered for all students in form time and assemblies as well as on progression days and through one-to-one meetings. In year 12 is is also addressed through Preparing for the Future sessions, Progression week, and there is the aim to reintroduce the work experience programme. We invite in external organisations to show a variety of careers options and build personal skills, we also welcome organisations making contact to offer their services to help with these objectives.
The Academy measures the careers programme through student voice and rates of progression to continued education, apprenticeships, and employment. These figures should be available from October.
Students are encouraged to use resources in their own time, and Chapeltown Academy had partnered with Unifrog (for which all students have a profile set up), and to seek independent careers guidance through the National Careers Service.
