Careers Advice and Guidance

Our careers curriculum provides students with the information required to make an informed decision about their next steps and future career.

Students can get independent and impartial guidance from our Connexions Careers Adviser, Mr Hutchinson. Careers information is also available from our Careers Leader, Mrs Brookes. 

If students require more information or additional personal guidance, they can contact jbrookes@windsor.windsoracademytrust.org.uk

Aims

We have the following objectives in line with the Gatsby Eight Benchmarks for Careers Excellence when delivering the careers programme in school:

  • To plan and provide a stable careers programme for our learners
  • To expose students to relevant labour market information (LMI)
  • To address the needs of all students
  • To link curriculum learning to careers
  • To provide opportunities for students to engage with employers and employees
  • To support students to obtain work experience placements at year 10 and 12
  • To provide opportunities for students to discover further and higher education
  • To provide personal guidance to students on careers education.

Business Partnerships

We work with many local employers to allow our students to meet industry professionals and experience high quality work placements to help inform their future pathways. 

We have an impressive business network with over 500 contacts that have provided experience of work for our students. We are always looking for new businesses to work with us to support our students. If you are interested contact Mrs Brookes at jbrookes@windsor.windsoracademytrust.org.uk
