Careers Information, Advice and Guidance (CIAG)

At Bramley Park Academy we passionately believe it is never too soon for our students to start developing the skills and attributes needed to be self-confident, well-educated and aspirational individuals. We recognise the importance of preparing our children for the next stage in their education – and beyond – for the world of work. We set high expectations of our children’s conduct, behaviour, attendance and attitude to ensure that all students develop the attributes that employers value and seek out.

We expect all our students to develop high aspirations and in time, consider a wide range of further study and careers. We aim to inspire our students through real-life contact with the world of work, to help them understand where different choices can take them in the future.

We wish to ensure that our students are not restricted by circumstances, location, or gender. We work hard across school and in all lessons to challenge all forms of stereotyping to ensure that boys and girls from all backgrounds and diversity groups genuinely believe they can take on any career including those that are often portrayed as primarily for one or the other of the sexes.  This will help every young person to realise their potential and so support social mobility.

At Bramley Park Academy we achieve this through developing partnerships with both local and national organisations, where they deliver motivational workshops. For example, Whitebox Photography have recently delivered 2 workshops with our Year 5 students, introducing them to the world of photography.
