Etonbury Academy

Careers

Etonbury Academy Careers Services aims to provide students with a quality Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance; CEIAG, in order to enable students to investigate and evaluate career paths so students are able to make informed decisions at Post 16.

Through the Careers programme, we will provide opportunities to equip our students with the skills which will enable them to be successful in any business they wish to work in. In particular, the Etonbury curriculum will aim to build and strengthen skills in Communication, Teamwork/Leadership, Analysing and Investigating, Initiative and Self Motivation, Planning and Organisation.

We know that employers in the UK have concerns about skills gaps and the work-readiness of some young people. Etonbury Academy is a member of the SEMLEP Careers and Enterprise Network, part of the national Careers and Enterprise Company programme.

Our aim is that through employer engagement at all ages, we ensure that young people leave our school with the skills, competencies, knowledge, appropriate qualifications and attitudes needed by employers for both their own career development and economic sustainability and growth.

While building our careers programme we are looking for passionate employers from businesses and other organisations to help our students and thus shape the future workforce and bring the world of work to life for the next generation.

The following high impact activities are used to work in partnership with businesses to help our students prepare for the world of work:

·         Employer Talks

·         Business site visits

·         Mentoring

·         Enterprise activities

·         Work experience and job shadowing

·         Mock interviews and CV preparation
