Careers Education

Our Vision

St Aidans students are employable, confident and ambitious young men with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in their chosen career.

St Aidan’s Catholic Academy embeds Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance into our overall approach to raising aspirations and developing a culture of hard work, trust and fairness.

Through our careers programme, curriculum and through our school ethos, we aim to ensure that students recognise the importance of CEIAG. Promoting a career development programme is an essential part of the mission and ethos of our school. We aim to support the aspirations of all our students to ensure that they gain the understanding, skills and experience they need to make progress and succeed in learning and work.

The Academy has a statutory duty to secure independent careers guidance for all year 8 to 11 students (The Education Act 2011 / Careers Guidance and Access for Education and Training Providers January 2018).

We believe that effective careers education and guidance not only contributes to the well-being of individuals but also to the well-being of their families, the communities to which they belong, wider society, businesses and the economy.

St Aidan’s Catholic Academy measures and assesses the careers the impact of the careers programme on pupils by completing the compass evaluation tool via the career and enterprise company. Destination data is also used to measure the impact of the programme.
