Careers

At William Lovell Academy we know the importance of effective Careers Education, including Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) for young people.

We expect all our students to develop high aspirations and eventually move into a wide range of ambitious careers.  We want to ensure that every student who comes to William Lovell Academy, regardless of background or individual need, leaves equipped with the resilience, ability and drive to move confidently down a path of their own choosing and become successful in the future.  We are committed to following the Department of Education’s Careers Strategy, the statutory guidance on careers education, and we are currently working towards meeting all 8 of the Gatsby Benchmarks.

We make our students aware of as many opportunities as we can, throughout the year and across all year groups. We do this through employer visits, guest speakers, work place visits, Careers Fayres, Further Education and Higher Education provider talks, through assemblies and in workshops.  We also employ a dedicated Careers Advisor who gives independent and impartial advice and guidance regarding career decisions, and provide students with guidance and information on higher and further education.  Please see our Careers Policy and Provider Access Statement for more information on our Careers Programme.
