Careers advice and guidance at Aston Manor Academy aims to encourage students to make the most of the opportunities available and support and guide our students towards positive career pathways for their future.
Aston Manor Academy is committed to raising aspirations, challenging stereotypes and instilling ambition and the desire to succeed in all our students. We aim to encourage students to make the most of the opportunities available and support and guide our students towards positive career pathways for their future.
The purpose of our careers curriculum at Aston Manor Academy is to provide a stable careers programme, where each and every student is given the opportunity to succeed, no matter what their background, as they prepare for entering the world of work. Aston Manor Academy maintains an ethos of hard work, aspiration and success, all delivered through a culture of nurture, support and encouragement where students respect each other and grow in confidence and resilience.
Our mission statement, ‘All different, All equal, All achieving.’ is key to both our careers curriculum and the wider school vision and aims. We work together to meet the eight Gatsby benchmarks to ensure that students’ aspirations are raised through a variety of methods, including an awareness of local labour market information, meeting employers and visiting workplaces, experiences of further and higher education, links to careers within the curriculum, and personal guidance. We believe this allows our students to develop personal effectiveness and career readiness, resulting in positive outcomes in terms of education and employment.
The senior leadership team at Aston Manor Academy supports our pupils and we value and encourage this guidance to enhance opportunities and build aspirations to future pathways. We do this using a number of strategies including personal guidance, assemblies and workshops. Careers guidance is embedded through the curriculum and across the key stages to ensure pupils can successfully achieve their goals. An ambitious careers programme is vital to the life chances of the young people who attend Aston Manor Academy.
