The Cavendish High Academy, in the first instance, measures and assesses its career programme against the Gatsby Career Benchmarks.  The impact of its programme is assessed through both pupil and parent voice as well as feedback from professional partnerships. Next Careers Programme review to be in Summer 2023. 

In relationship to other parts of the curriculum and other policies Careers education is conducted in accordance with the School’s equal opportunities policy, CEIAG policy and other relevant policies. The whole school remit of careers is recognised and the whole careers related curriculum is currently being developed and reviewed alongside that of other areas so that careers education is an integral part of the whole school curriculum.

Our overall aim is to support our students in making well informed and realistic career decisions for the future. We do this by providing:

  • Individual careers guidance for students during transition periods.
  • Access to up to date careers information.
  • Links with local employers.
