Student Enterprise, Careers and Post-16 Options

Ormiston Denes Academy values the importance of careers education and guidance that prepares students for challenges in the future. An effective Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme helps prepare young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. It can contribute to achievement and inclusion by raising aspirations, increasing motivation, challenging stereotypes and enabling young people to make realistic and informed choices about their futures.

At Ormiston Denes Academy we employ a specialist expert to deliver impartial Careers Education, Information and Guidance.  We work closely with an organisation with a great deal of experience and expertise in this field.  They are called All Together.  Our All Together Guidance Professional, delivers Independent Careers Guidance in line with the statutory duty on all schools.

Mixing traditional, friendly and robust guidance with employer engagement expertise across education and employment spaces, she brings Ormiston Denes Academy and employers together to create an enriched matrix of careers education both in and outside of school.

Our guidance professional will support the development and facilitation of CEIAG across all year groups and will be including an emphasis on new traineeships and increasing internships and apprenticeships for young people.  She can be contacted via careers@ormistondenes.co.uk.

Students and parents can drop in to speak to our guidance professional about applications.

Careers Education helps young people develop the knowledge, confidence and skills that they need to make well informed choices and plans that enable them to progress smoothly into further learning and work.

Information, Advice and Guidance covers a range of personalised activities and interventions that help young people to become more self-reliant and better able to manage their progression through learning and work.
