Trinity Academy New Bridge Careers Information
The aim of Careers Education is to enable young people to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to understand themselves. It supports making choices, encourages research opportunities and the ability to manage transitions from education into training or employment. It is in place to foster independent learning, develop employability skills and explore how to use information advice and guidance. In short, it is about developing the skill set to enable the take-up of experiences or opportunities to enrich lives.
Our vision statement and core values ensure that empathy, articulation, positive relationships, resilience, praise and evaluation are rooted into our curriculum and that our learners and their families know our story. This ‘prepare’ agenda embeds the values needed for adulthood, employability and success.
From September 2022 all schools must secure independent careers guidance for learners from years 7 to 13. At Trinity Academy New Bridge, our careers curriculum aims to ensure that learners experience at least 6 opportunities to with a range of providers of approved technical education qualifications and apprenticeships. In support of appropriate provision, Trinity Academy New Bridge work alongside the North East Local Enterprise Partnership and are part of the North East Ambition Careers hub. This is a government strategy to strengthen local community involvement in the implementation of the National Careers strategy.
