The Careers Service Guide 

Our purpose is to develop a wide range of innovative strategies to empower every student at The Jubilee Academy  to take ownership of their own career path. We will do this by delivering a robust careers programme which will aid students and their parents/carers to make informed decisions about subject choices and future career pathways. 

Our Objectives 

  • To provide every student and their parent/carer with information about future study options and labour market opportunities 

  • To provide independent careers guidance 

  • To provide access to a range of training and education providers 

  • To provide every student the opportunity to undertake work experience (Year 12) 

  • To provide every student with a distinct number of meaningful employer encounters
