Careers Programme

Our Careers Leader is Mrs V. Owusu-Daaku.

Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance provides a significant contribution to preparing our young people for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of life.

The Archbishop Lanfranc Academy is committed to providing the best opportunities for students to realise their career aspirations. Our CEIAG programme fulfils its statutory obligations and is closely linked to the Academy Improvement Plan.

The Academy provides all students with a planned programme of careers education activities throughout their school career, with opportunities at key transition points to access impartial information and expert advice and guidance. It is also committed to maximising the benefits for students by using a whole school approach involving parents, carers, external CEIAG providers, employers, and other local agencies.

Our CEIAG programme supports our students in making a successful transition to the next stage of their lives by:

  • Empowering young people to plan and manage their own futures
  • Providing comprehensive information on all options
  • Raising aspirations
  • Promoting equality, diversity, social mobility, and challenging stereotypes
  • Enabling young people to sustain employability and achieve personal and economic wellbeing throughout their lives
  • Students in Year 7 will complete “Transition to secondary” activities and will attend KidZania in order to give them an insight into the world of work.

Students in Year 8 will complete their initial Morrisby profile and discuss their option choices with tutors; they will also benefit from attending a careers workshop.

Students in Year 9 will attend careers workshops and may attend Churchill College, Cambridge University during the year.

Year 10 students will benefit from an employability skills workshop, and they will complete their in person work experience in July.

Year 11 students will attend personal statement workshops, have support with completing further education applications and will visit local colleges on open days.
