Careers in the Curriculum
The Oaks Academy seeks to maximise the life chances of all of our young people, so it is crucial to prepare young people for life beyond school and college. Careers education, advice, information and guidance (CEIAG) is a central part of the school ethos of achieving excellence together. All members of staff at The Oaks Academy are expected to contribute to the effective provision of CEIAG, CEIAG is not the sole responsibility of the Careers Leader.
It is important that students leave school aware of themselves as individuals, aware of the opportunities available to them and able to make some decisions about their own life. Staff are expected to use lesson time, at key intervals, to introduce the link between the curriculum and future pathways so that students are fully informed of potential options. All subjects will aim to make links with external businesses and Further Education providers so that students are introduced to relevant industry professionals and are able to understand curriculum links to future careers.
