Careers Education, Information & Guidance

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All students will be supported through a programme of Careers Advice and Guidance.

We recognise that you will need careful support and specialist information to enable positive progress through the complex issue of curriculum choice and personal progression.

You will be seen individually on several occasions through your education so that the choices which you make are relevant and appropriate to both your academic ability level and your personal qualities.

Careers Support

The careers education and guidance at De Lacy Academy is delivered by CareersInc. CareersInc is an external, independent and impartial careers guidance service who will support students to aim high in their career goals and aspirations.

Our advisers are Miss Mucha and Mr Paley who are in school every Thursday and are based in the Careers Hub next to the canteen. Appointments can be made with them or you can pop in for an informal chat during break and lunch time.

Parents’ Entitlement

Investing in your Son/ Daughter’s Future

 

Research has consistently shown that parents and carers are the most influential factor in students’ decisions about the future. Your support and encouragement influences their choices, and the guidance you provide will be invaluable to their eventual achievements and career pathways. This might feel a little daunting…the jobs of the future may be very different from your own experiences and choices. In fact, they may not even have been invented yet!

 

There are some very simple and practical steps you can take to support your child.

 

  • Talk to them about their current educational attainment and estimated grades and encourage them to aim high (the skills shortages of the future will be in higher level jobs)
  • Discuss where they want to be and research how to get there (lots of great resources in the Academy and on the internet)
  • Use the links on the academy website www.delacyacademy.org.uk
  • Encourage them to seek out the advice and experiences they need to help them achieve their goals
  • Help them with the steps they need to take

 

Together with a range of career professionals, businesses and training providers we will support your son’s/daughter’s career development in a number of ways including:
