Winterbourne Academy


At Winterbourne Academy we provide a comprehensive Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme for every year group.

Most people spend many years of their life in a working environment and it is therefore important to equip our students with the necessary skills for them to make decisions about their future, to know how and where to access information and to link subject areas and qualifications with possible careers.

Good quality Careers Education will raise the aspirations of and help our students to become effective career planners and managers of their own progression through learning and work. It will increase motivation by linking activities in school with preparation for life Post 16 and Post 18. By providing quality information, advice and guidance, our aim is to raise students’ aspirations and ambitions for their futures and increase confidence, whilst offering equality of opportunity for all. 

Our careers programme is supported by our business volunteers from the local area who regularly  participate in the careers activities, provide Industry talks and workshops and share their knowledge and skills with students. We run regular Business Networking events throughout the year to recruit Business volunteers and further develop our existing Business links. If you have your own business or work in an organisation and are interested in coming along to one of our events, please contact a member of the Careers Team.

How Can Parents Help

As a parent, you are incredibly influential when it comes to the decisions your child makes in all areas of their lives and that is especially true when it comes to their education and careers. We know that the choices which are open to your child today may be very different from when you were in their position and you may feel as if you’re unsure about what advice to offer.

With that in mind, we want to try and make it as easy as possible for you to talk to your child about their options confidently; knowing that the information you have is as accurate and as up to date as possible.
