CAREERS

Vision Statement

Weatherfield Academy recognises the importance of a Careers Education and Guidance Programme that prepares its pupils for making important decisions that will influence their future education, careers and role in the world of work.

 

The academy believes that all of its pupils have an entitlement to a CEG curriculum, which develops progressively throughout their time at the academy. It encourages them to identify, develop and use their abilities unhampered by stereotypical attitudes. This is underpinned by unbiased information and advice.
