Introduction to Careers

At Victory, we are passionate about ensuring we provide our students with as much careers guidance as possible to enable them to make excellent decisions for bright futures.

We offer high quality, impartial careers guidance that helps pupils to make informed choices about which courses suit their academic needs and aspirations. The Academy is committed to Careers Education as a vital means of giving all students the skills, knowledge and understanding to manage their own lifelong learning and career development.

Careers education will prepare all students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of education, training and employment and also the challenges of adult life. Careers Education will both compliment and integrate within our SMSC Curriculum and Form programme.

Information, Advice and Guidance

We host a range of Working Lunches at the academy, making use of our Lecture Theatre. A range of professionals have visited our students since we started the programme including lawyers, accountants, healthcare workers, employees from the media, journalists and senior police personnel. 

In form time, students complete a range of careers-focused learning activities to help them to make excellent choices.

We also run regular Plan Your Future sessions in our new Careers Hub – any student is welcome. The aim of the sessions is not to necessarily decide on a fixed career, but to explore the options available. One-to-one sessions with our Independent Careers Adviser are available to all students on request from Mr Arger, Careers Coordinator. Students may email careersguidance@ormistonvictoryacademy.co.uk with any questions or to request an appointment with the Careers Adviser.
