At Oldbury Academy, we strive to ensure that all our students have access to quality careers education that raises the aspirations of each individual. Our vision is that by the time our students leave us they have the knowledge, skills and experience to make informed decisions about their future choices in the workplace, further education or training.
We currently hold the Quality in Careers Standard which is the national quality award for careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in schools. It is fully aligned with the eight Gatsby Benchmarks for ‘Good Career Guidance’ and fully complies with the Department for Education’s statutory guidance. We are constantly looking to improve our provision and as an Academy; we use the compass tool to assess and improve our work towards the Gatsby Benchmarks of best practice and will continue to develop our CEIAG to help us meet all of the Gatsby Benchmarks by 2020.
