Careers at the Dukeries Academy

At Dukeries Academy we are committed to providing both independent careers guidance and a highly structured careers programme as the legal entitlement of all pupils within each of our academies. Excellent careers, information, advice and guidance prepares pupils to make appropriate choices in order to be successful in adult life. Our careers, education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) programme will enable pupils to make informed educational and careers decisions which are aspirational yet match their abilities and needs.

Students will experience multiple interactions with employers through careers talks, events such as our Careers Fayre, work experience, mock interview day, assemblies, in specific lessons during afternoon coaching time and across the wider curriculum.

In addition to our links with local universities we work closely with the Careers and Enterprise Company, who regularly advise us as we work towards the Gatsby Benchmarks which set out best practices for all schools across the country.
