Careers

Weavers Academy’s vision is to empower young people with the knowledge, skills and creativity they need to succeed in school and in life. To do this we embed our six key concepts; structure, pattern, meaning, performance, human interaction and practice across the curriculum and into preparing all of our young people for their key transitions.

 

Opportunities for our providers to engage with our students include:

Year Group Wow Days, Enterprise Days, C.V Workshops, Raising Aspiration Workshops, Optional Work Experience, Yr 10 Employability Days, Access to Careers Guidance, University taster days and external industry experience.

Planning the CEIAG programme usually takes places by 20th of July every year, however, the school welcomes new providers contacting them throughout the academic year to contribute to the programme. Requests by providers must be made every two calendar months in advance to the Careers Leader and will be subject to the availability of room allocation, resources, equipment and will not impinge on external examinations.

The CEIAG programme is monitored, reviewed and evaluated against the Gatsby Benchmarks and the Quality in Careers Standard by the Senior Leadership Team, the Governing Body and the Careers Leader (Ms C. Ni Seachnaisaigh Assistant Principal)

Careers Information Advice and guidance

We employ the services of Cheryl McCarthy through ‘LifeJigsaw’, a local independent careers service. Cheryl has been working with Weavers for a number of years, both through her careers work and her STEM Ambassador role. Feedback from staff, students and local business volunteers has been very positive and through this sevice, we feel we are giving our students the tools to support themselves with their potential career and Post 16 options.

All students at Weavers, are able to request a careers meeting once they are in Year 10. Our main focus in the Autumn term will be in our Year 11 students who are considering their POST 16 options. Students in other year groups are able to request appointments if necessary, or teachers can refer students if they feel it could be of benefit to the student concerned.

Cheryl can be contacted via school reception on 01933 222830 or direct – cheryl.mccarthy@weaversacademy.org.uk
