Queen Elizabeth’s Academy offers students a comprehensive programme of activities geared around taking the transition into further education and training, apprenticeships and employment.

These activities are designed to inform, inspire and motivate each individual, prepare them for work and understand where different education and training courses could take them in the future. We are supported in our careers programme by members of the local business community.

Additionally, the academy works alongside Business in the Community to provide further guidance together with high quality work experience opportunities for 13-18 year olds.

Some of the activities which support our students include tutor time studies, step-up days, whole year group CEIAG provisions, and utilisation of the U-Explore website.

Our CEIAG programme at the academy has been developed to provide confidential and impartial advice to students on:

  • planning for the future
  • choosing appropriate courses and pathways
  • applying for college and university
  • completing application forms, CVs and letters of application
  • finding work or an apprenticeship
  • mock interviews
