Careers Guidance

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 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 a weekly Plan Your Future event in our new library from 2.45pm until 5.00pm – 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 are also available on request from Mrs Ballentine.
