Career Leads and Aims
Throughout a student’s time at our academy, they will receive a range of workshops and experiences to support them in making important decisions about their future and next steps, whether it be further education at Post 16 GAS or college, apprenticeships and training, university or employment.
The Careers Information Education Advice and Guidance will begin in year 7 and supports students through to year 11 and 13 when they leave Grace Academy Solihull.
Our students will take part in 1:1 or group interventions and will receive career interviews from a careers advisor, learn how to create an employable CV, visit universities, gain support with apprenticeship choices, broaden their knowledge on UCAS applications and participate in business run assessment days. Grace Academy Solihull also works very closely with Unifrog, an online career platform.
Students can explore their future careers and education options within school or at home with their personal logins. Our programme is designed to enable young people to make excellent choices about their futures and inspire them throughout their time at our academy. Our stable career provision links well to the Gatsby Benchmarks and we aim to address the needs of each student through the personal profiles.
Our Careers Lead is Brad Pettitt, while the Academy Leadership Link person is Louise Knight.
