“Leaders have designed a well-planned careers programme. Pupils are appointed as Career Champions. They meet with Senior Leaders to discuss careers education, information, advice and guidance and the opportunity to take part in work experience”.

- Ofsted report November 2021

Our CEIAG programme helps students to learn to make decisions and manage transitions as learners and workers. As we develop career awareness and broaden horizons, we are supporting them in making informed decisions about life after Wellfield. It is essential that the school contributes in preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experience of adult life, as evidence suggests improved Careers education is linked to higher achievement at GCSE. All students who attend Wellfield Academy will be exposed to the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices and achieve economic wellbeing in later life.

Our careers programme meets the eight government-set ‘Gatsby Benchmarks’ in every area. A summarised, parent/carer guide to the Gatsby Benchmarks can be found HERE.
