The Careers Service plans to provide ongoing support to TBOWA students during these exceptional circumstances. If you are self-isolating and have questions or require support regarding your post 16 or post 18 careers options, please email Kirsten.email@example.com who will respond to your enquiry.
Students are reminded that they can access Unifrog online, which has extensive information and resources on careers pathways and apprenticeships. You can also find links to colleges and other careers resources further down this page.
The academy will be following advice from Government and Public Health England with regards any arrangements for examinations and further information will be provided as appropriate.
All Bishop of Winchester Academy students are entitled to access to high quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) to ensure they are able to ‘Live life to the full’.
The Careers team continues to develop a wide range of innovative strategies to encourage every student within our school community to take ownership of their own individual career plan. The focus is upon career and option choice, raising aspirations and achievement of individual students and equipping them with skills, attitudes, knowledge and understanding as a foundation for managing their lifelong career and learning. We strive to help our students and their parents to make informed decisions about subject choices and future career pathways.
The Careers Plan is delivered across all year groups during mentor time and with additional calendared careers enrichment opportunities, often supported by the strong links we have forged with local employers, colleges and universities. We believe that by providing regular, impartial information about a variety of careers and pathways, students can make informed choices and take ownership of their own individual career plan.
The Academy is committed to meeting the requirements of the Gatsby Benchmarks of Good Career Guidance.
Students wishing to discuss any aspect of careers, education, information, advice and guidance can arrange to see Mrs Bryan-Brown, Careers Lead & Adviser, in A29 or can attend a drop in session at break or lunchtime.
Enquiries from parents or guardians can be made to Kirsten Bryan-Brown or on 01202 512697
