Every student is entitled to careers education and impartial advice and guidance (CEIAG). Careers education is delivered in tutor periods from years 7 to 11, but also discretely in other areas of the curriculum as well as through internal and external career events. Sixth Form receive impartial advice and guidance through curriculum areas and through internal and external career events. Students have access to IT programs, publications and one to one interviews.
Students will leave Oak Academy having had contact with high quality and impartial information and guidance to get the most out of their learning and to enable successful progression to further education or training. We aim to help students develop skills and knowledge to cope with an ever changing working environment. The school has a careers policy and work related learning policy which is available in the policies section of this website.
The Academy is very excited to be collecting evidence to gain the 'Investors in Careers' award. This is an award that recognises the brilliant work that is already actioned by staff and pupils throughout the Academy and in tutor periods. It also helps us to identify how to improve the Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance that is provided for our students.
