Within Workington Academy, we are able to offer information to students on their future choices and work with many external organisations to support this.
Workington Academy is committed to delivering high-quality information, advice and guidance (IAG) for all its students from Year 7 to 13. IAG enables our students to make informed decisions about their Career goals and future aspirations.
Through our Personal Development lessons of Economic Wellbeing and across the whole school through Assemblies, ICT Facilities and Careers Events we raise aspirations about what students can achieve. It helps them to progress to Higher Education, Apprenticeships, and the wider world of work and opens their eyes to professions and careers that they might never have thought of.
Over the Academic Year, we offer varied careers and enterprise activities and support the national campaigns for Enterprise Week, My Money Week, National Apprenticeship Week and National Careers Week and hold events across these weeks targeted at whole school.
