Overview of careers programme:

We pride ourselves on our careers provision at Medeshamstede Academy.  We aim to provide every child with the knowledge, skills and confidence to support them with their chosen career aspiration in preparation for adulthood and lifelong career planning/management skills. We work collaboratively with Talentino and The Skills Builder Partnership to embed careers into our curriculum and ensure that all students have equity of opportunity. 

Our provision for CEIAG 4-16 includes:

  • The opportunity to develop and demonstrate essential skills that are transferable for work and life.
  • In primary and KS3 Careers education is focused on developing confidence and independence skills as well as creating world of work moments within the classroom so students understand clear career links within the curriculum
  • Individual careers meetings with a careers guidance professional designed to help students realise and fulfil their true potential.
  • The chance for students to meet external providers from colleges, universities and employers to give clear ideas and options of the pathways available to them.
  • Development of work ready skills including C.V and Interview masterclasses.
  • Take part in extended enrichment activities outside the classroom environment. 
  • Students will be given the opportunity to gain work experience to compliment their studies to provide further insight into the labour market and support their personal statements


At Medeshamstede Academy we review our CEIAG programme annually, the next review date is May 2023.
