Bede Academy Careers Vision:

The vision for careers within Bede Academy is to raise aspirations. We want students to leave the Academy with the knowledge that they have developed their own academic ability through their understanding of careers. Through this understanding they will make informed choices that move them into their chosen career whether that be through University, Apprenticeships and the job market.  

We work towards this vision as an Academy by enabling high quality progression into areas students are gifted in and want to develop in.

Below is an overview of the Careers Provision that is added into the Academy’s Personal Development Program for the coming year 2022/2023:

Through the above PD provision, you can see that our careers programme is practical, targeted, and individualised. We focus on careers throughout the PD programme each half term, but also offer bespoke careers development across the course of the year. 

Throughout the PD provision:

Every student starts with Unifrog to develop an understanding the concept of careers and their overall goals. Many students within KS4&5 will also use Unifrog during their free time to explore careers provision further.

Students will then gain an insight into Labour Market Information based on a variety of areas:

  • Digital Careers
  • Advanced Manufacturers
  • Health and Life Science

Moving into KS4 & 5 students gain a bespoke PD curriculum based on career progression through the introduction of work experience and preparation for after Academy life. This will include how to write a CV and cover letter for a job alongside the application process for work experience placement

The following websites are worth visiting for further information:
