At Ormiston Victory Academy were are committed to ensuring that our Careers provision meets all the current guidelines for good practice, in order to prepare and equip our students for their future careers.
We measure and evaluate our programme in a number of ways including the Quality in Careers Standard and the GATSBY Benchmarks.
Quality in Careers Standard – ‘Gold’ Award
As of January 2019, we have been awarded the national Quality in Careers Gold Standard, by Prospects. The national Quality in Careers Standard is awarded to schools who can demonstrate the importance they place on careers and how they support students to make decisions about their futures.
There is a statutory duty to ‘secure independent careers guidance’ for all students from Year 8 onwards and the Government also recommends that all schools should be required to work towards the national Quality in Careers Standard. Achieving the national Quality in Careers Standard shows the Principal, Governors and Leadership Team at Ormiston Victory Academy embrace, promote and endorse quality careers education and recognise the part it plays in the overall success of the school and its students.
The school offers a range of activities to introduce students to the work of work and help them make decisions about life after school. The academy works very closely with a number of different providers to ensure every opportunity is given to our students and to make them aware of all that is available to them.
