We are proud of our strong established links with a variety of employers and education partners who we work closely with throughout the year. Careers Education at Erdington Academy is a coherent programme of activities that inform, inspire and motivate young people, preparing them for work and helping them to understand where different education and training choices could take them in the future. This is delivered throughout all year groups.
Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is a major contributing factor towards the successful transition into the world of work. This is supported by parents, teachers, professionals and advisory agencies and includes information provided by the DfEs statutory guidance. Erdington Academy is also guided by the eight benchmarks for delivering good career guidance, as identified in the Gatsby ‘Good Career Guidance’ report. The aims and objectives are that students feel confident and well informed about their choices and are able to engage proactively in decisions about the pathways they will take now and in the future.
Erdington Academy’s Careers Team are dedicated to ensuring students between Years 7 and 11 receive independent and impartial careers guidance, developing an embedded culture of high expectations and potential attainment.
As part of our commitment to prepare our students for a rapidly changing world, we are delighted to announce that we have signed up to Start – an innovative digital careers platform.
Start will help your child to explore and prepare for their future career as well as develop their personal profile that will support their transition through education and in to employment.
