West Bromwich Collegiate Academy is committed to providing its students with a varied programme of careers education and guidance activities to equip and enable them to make informed decisions and choices at key transition points; both during school and as they leave and head towards Post 16 education.
Our programme aims to help students develop, identify and add to their employability skills throughout their school life. It also contributes to the academy’s key values in ensuring excellence and raising aspirations whilst enabling students to acquire social and vocational skills. Importantly, it seeks to help students understand and be prepared for the ever changing and challenging work environment.
At Key Stage 3, careers information is integrated within the Form Time Personal Development Sessions, where several units focussing on Careers are covered, the Literacy for Life curriculum where careers are linked to specific subjects and will also be delivered via a series of Focus Days and stand-alone events and opportunities.
