Careers

At Open Academy we aim to inspire all our students to make the best transition into the right choice for their next steps, whether that is employment, further or higher education, and to support students in the development of the skills needed to manage a fulfilling career in a changing world. Raising aspiration, encouraging achievement and creating awareness are the main goals of our careers provision.

In common with all secondary schools across the UK, Open Academy is working towards achieving the standards outlined by the Government known as the Gatsby Benchmarks. These benchmarks set out best practice for careers provision and Open Academy is currently in partnership with a range of local organisations in order to achieve this. Currently our careers partners are the Norwich Opportunity Area, Careers and Enterprise Company, UEA Outreach, Beacon East and NEACO (Network for East Anglian Collaborative Outreach)

Careers co-ordination is led by Ms Davies who organises mentoring, external visits and school events. In addition, many teachers are involved in the delivery of subject-specific careers information, leading visits to businesses and competing in inter-school challenges. Students also have the opportunity in PSHE lessons to create their own careers profile, build a CV and learn about the application processes.

Further dates to follow –Workshops with M & S, KPMG and Young Enterprise

                                       Outreach events with UEA and NEACO

Also – Beacon East CEAIG Careers Adviser working one-to-one with Year 11 students throughout the Autumn term.
