Careers Education

At Yate Academy, success is not just measured by academic achievement but by the character and aspirations of an individual.

The aim of our Careers Education, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme is to have every child in our care equipped with the knowledge, skills and experience to make ambitious and informed choices about their future career pathways. We aim to provide students with well-rounded experiences that develop the attitudes, attributes and behaviours needed for a successful transition into the world of work and which motivates students to develop their aspirations. This is to ensure that all our students take their place as suitably qualified and responsible adults within society.

Students at Yate Academy will therefore experience accurate, impartial and focussed careers information and advice through a bespoke careers programme. Taking an inclusive approach, this programme is designed to unite real world experiences with expert tuition from leading figures in community, industry and educational sectors. This is to ensure that students have the knowledge and understanding to manage and achieve their lifelong ambitions. The programme which is student centred, is integrated into the whole curriculum and is based on a partnership with students and their parents/carers.

This programme will promote equality of opportunity, inclusion and without discrimination in any
