Introduction

Here at Wingfield Academy we are wholeheartedly committed, through our ‘Location Vocation’ careers programme of activities delivered to Year 7 to 11, to prepare all our learners to make informed decisions about their future/next steps ensuring they maximise their potential and successfully transition into higher education or an aspirational alternative.

‘Location Vocation’ Vision

We are committed to implementing a programme that will:

  • Empower learners to make informed, realistic decisions at key transition points in learning and work E.g. at 14, supporting learners’ qualification and subject choices based on their likes, strengths and assessment methods.
  • Inspire and motivate learners to fulfil their potential. Explore different careers to raise learners’ aspirations, broaden their horizons and accumulate cultural capital, the knowledge, behaviours, and skills that a learner can draw upon to be successful in society, their career and the world of
  • Enrich learners’ experience by providing multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in workplaces.
  • Enable access to up-to-date Labour Market information (LMI) to ensure learners are aware of growth sectors which are currently working at or above average productivity and those who have a gap in worker numbers where opportunities are readily available in order to support social mobility.
  • Overcome stereotypes to help learners explore all career opportunities available to them. Develop learners personal financial capability.
  • Provide learners with high quality independent and impartial careers advice and guidance which is in their best interests
