Q: What careers support are Streetly students entitled to?
A. The Streetly Academy students are entitled to careers support that meets the government’s statutory duty, published in April 2014, to ensure that all pupils in Years 8 to 13 are provided with impartial and independent careers guidance.
The vision and mission of The Streetly Academy is to produce a planned programme of careers activities to help learners at key transition points choose 13-19 pathways that are right for them.
Careers support will follow best practice from the careers profession and be delivered by trained staff, be person-centred, impartial, raise aspirations, challenge stereotyping and promote equality and diversity.
The careers programme is designed to meet the needs of all learners at The Streetly Academy. Activities are differentiated and personalised to ensure progression in their career learning and development and to strengthen their motivation, aspirations and attainment at academy.
The Streetly Academy is committed to providing extra support as required for learners with additional needs and works in partnership with other agencies and partners.
The careers programme benefits from links made with external partners, such as employers, universities, voluntary organisations, training providers, colleges and other schools.

- Provision of high quality careers information.
- Careers and PSHE lessons.
- BTEC courses.
- Curriculum activities.
- Parent evenings.
- Enrichment events and activities.
- External events, careers conferences, open days and masterclasses.
