Careers

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.
