Academy students benefit from ‘Next Steps Day’

Last Thursday students from Years 9, 11 and Sixth Form took part in our annual careers event. As in previous years, The Academy received huge support from local and national employers, the armed forces, police and further and higher education providers who gave their time to enhance our students’ understanding of further and higher education, employment opportunities, apprenticeships and routes into careers.

Students were able to ask questions of the exhibitors as they walked around the stands, discover new areas of interest and gain valuable information about possible routes into their prospective careers.

As Year 9 are currently preparing to choose their options this day will hopefully have given them some ideas and opportunities to think about alongside the information they receive within lessons and the upcoming Pathways Evening.

All the students were excellently behaved and took part with great enthusiasm in the event and their conduct was complemented by the exhibitors.
