At Castleford Academy, we are committed to ensuring all students receive the appropriate level of Information, Advice and Guidance to enable them to make well informed and realistic decisions about their future in terms of education and careers.
Castleford Academy believes that students should be appropriately prepared for the choices they make during their education and the choices they make in the future. Students should have an understanding of how their education will prepare them for the world of work. The students should feel confident in making key decisions about educational and career choices and have a clear understanding of the routes to achieve their goal. This preparation should be achieved through a variety of means such as impartial and independent one to ones with a qualified Careers Advisor, careers resources purchased by the Academy, a whole school Careers Week, and Taster Sessions at local colleges and Universities.
In response to the updated requirements and expectations of school published by the DfE in January 2018, below is a link to our Provider Access Statement providing information on all the events and further opportunities available for education and training providers to access all pupils in year 8 to year 13 to provide them with information around qualifications (including technical education), employment or apprenticeships.
