Personal Development & Careers Programme

Career education and guidance programs play a crucial role in preparing young people for the challenges and opportunities that await them in life. 

Great Yarmouth Charter Academy has designed a comprehensive program of activities throughout all year groups, as part of our Personal Development offer, that helps our pupils choose pathways that align with their interests, skills, and goals.

This year we have partnered with a range of local and national employers to enrich young people’s experience of employability skills, career aspirations and future opportunities, including new partnerships, such as;

- The Royal Air Force
- The National Health Service
- Trinity College, University of Cambridge
- Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge
- University of East Anglia
- BAE Systems
- Lotus Cars
- EDF Energy

We provide additional career guidance during assemblies and form time, at appropriate times throughout the academic year. Our teaching staff think carefully about how to support students to understand the application of learning by contextualising teaching points within careers, future opportunities and the world of work.

A certified Level 6 Careers Advisor is available on-site one day a week. Furthermore, all Year key stage 4 students are given at least one face-to-face interview to assist with post-16 transition. We also offer additional support appointments for those students who require it.

We welcome enquiries from parents, representatives of local industries and educational providers. You can email the Careers Lead using the link below or call us on 01493 842061.
