Careers Education

The Dixons Broadgreen Academy Careers programme aims to provide all students with regular access to employers, further education providers, expert guidance and workplace experiences to support students in making informed and educated decisions about their next steps. It is an integral element of the curriculum and careers information is interleaved with subject specific content delivered through the curriculum.

Our commitment to careers provision extends beyond the legal minimum entitlement for students and is underpinned by the Gatsby framework with a commitment to meeting all eight benchmarks.

The intended outcomes of the careers programme include, but are not limited to -

  • Students will undertake various work related experiences
  • Students will reflect upon and refine their aspirations
  • Students will increase their knowledge of education, training and career opportunities
  • Students will develop a career plan to help them achieve their sentence and realise their potential
