  • Encourage participation in lifelong learning, including further and higher education as well as learning through apprenticeships and work.
  • Allow students to develop a broad understanding of the world of work and an ability to respond to changing opportunities through labour market education and independent research.
  • Empower students with access to information and guidance to allow them to independently research their paths into work, college, sixth form, further education, Higher Education and Apprenticeships.
  • Allow students, the opportunity to enhance their skills for work and core competencies in line with our Academies values through the curriculum and independent learning.
