West Walsall EACT Academy is committed to raising the aspirations of all of our pupils. Indeed, our core belief speaks of seeking opportunities to achieve our ambitious goals. We aim to ensure our careers programme education fully equips them to go on to university or the career of their choice.
Every student at WWEA is encouraged to set their sights high for their futures, regardless of their background or individual circumstances. Our Careers programme supports this process through a wide range of activities including Careers education as part of the PSHE Programme, outside speakers, academic support, mentoring and visits to universities.
The programme equips pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to make the transition from school to a university, college and career of their choice. This programme begins in Year 7 and provides opportunities, careers information, advice and guidance so that all pupils are aware and supported to make the right choices as well as developing the skills necessary for a successful career. Our Careers Journey for Years 7-13 can be seen below.
We comply with the Baker Clause by adhering to a provider access policy, which is in our website. We welcome a range of providers regularly to speak to our students of all year groups. WWEA can arrange access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997. Please contact the school through the Senior Leader responsible for Careers email@example.com if you wish to come and speak to pupils about your institution.
