The Wellington Academy aims to provide all students with information and guidance so that they make informed and realistic choices about their future career and educational opportunities. All students are encouraged to use a computerised careers guidance system, beginning in Year 7, to access, record, and progress their career learning throughout their time at the academy and beyond. Impartial careers advice is available on request for all students.

Careers education is delivered through our 6 Values Curriculum Days spread across the academic year and in some tutor sessions. The input and focus increases as students pass through the academy becoming more significant in Years 9 10 and 11. Visits to the workplace and visitors to the academy take place throughout the year – details will be published in our Newsletter.

Detail for Provider Access under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997 (Baker Clause) can be found in Section 6 and Appendix 2 of the Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance Policy.
