Your Careers Programme

Here at The Bulwell Academy we believe that your first day at school is the time that you should be really thinking about what you do when you leave.  We think that your education is the beginning of your journey to enter the world of work.

All students are entitled to careers education, information, advice and guidance that is impartial and confidential. We believe that students and parents have an entitlement to support with careers.

Each year we have a range of activities that are designed to help you to explore what jobs or industries might be best for you.  We invite employers and specialists to come in to school to share their expertise and we organise trips and visits so that you can see the world of work for yourself.

For more information on our Careers Programme, please click on the red buttons below.  This information is reviewed on an annual basis prior to the beginning of the academic year.

Useful Websites & Resources

As well as making the most of all the opportunities that the Academy offers, it is really important to develop the skills to explore the world of work and future career options online.

We have selected a number of websites and resources that provide detailed information to inform future choices.
