Careers, Information, Advice and Guidance

“The best way to predict the future is to create it” —Abraham Lincoln

Biddick Academy recognises the importance of outstanding careers and employability provision to ensure our students are prepared for the ever-changing world of work. An outstanding Careers Education programme is vital if our students are to be inspired, raise their aspirations, work hard and make the most of opportunities available to them. We want to empower young people to take control of their lives and develop the key transferable skills and attributes that are so important in the current and future work place.

Our Careers Education programme is based on the framework of eight GATSBY benchmarks of ‘Good Careers Guidance’ and we adhere to the Inspiring IAG Code of Practice. The Academy has been recognised for its outstanding careers programme by gaining the Gold Standard Quality in Careers Award. The national Quality in Careers Standard is awarded to schools and education providers who can demonstrate the importance they place on careers and how they support students to make decisions about their futures.

Our Careers Lead is Mrs K. Roberts.  You can contact Mrs Roberts at roberts.k@biddickacademy.com or 0191 5111600
