This includes apprenticeships and further/higher education information, advice and guidance (IAG). There is a planned programme of guidance for all Year 11 students making decisions about their future career paths and this includes a Post 16 evening during the autumn term. Students apply online to Neale-Wade Academy or an alternative Post 16 provider via www.ucasprogress.com
For post 16 students, there are a number of opportunities to work with tutors and the Post 16 team to look at options for higher education as well as employment and apprenticeships.
The Learning Resource Centre as well as the Post 16 Centre provides information of use to students planning for future choices and opportunities.
As an Academy we have forged many excellent working relationships with local businesses. This has created opportunities for them to work within the Academy giving advice on interview techniques, application writing, business studies and practical skills. Businesses have been a useful source of careers advice on apprenticeships, career paths, further education and higher education. Some students also take part in work experience where it is relevant to their curriculum.
