The Littlehampton Academy is committed to providing our students with a programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) for all students in Years 7 to 13.

In July 2018, we proudly gained The Quality in Careers Standard Award Investor in Careers. This is a nationally recognised quality standard for the management of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in schools.  By achieving this award, it has demonstrated our strong, whole school commitment to careers and the principles of Investor in Careers.

What we offer
A programme of Personal Development is available for every year group and the aim is to inspire students and to provide them with employability and lifelong learning skills to complement their qualifications. We promote communication, confidence, financial capability, initiative, organisation, problem solving, resilience and teamwork amongst other skills.

Year 7 - The focus is skills and qualities, future goals and dreams and how they link to jobs.

Year 8 - The focus is careers and how to explore job skills and research dream jobs, using online careers programme Fast Tomato.

Year 9 - The focus is future careers, qualifications required and also looking at gender and jobs.

Year 10 - Students will have a work experience week in March. Students will also have the opportunity to be interviewed by an employer.

Year 11 - Each student will have a 30 minute 1:1 interview with our Career Advisors to discuss their future plans along with preparing for job interviews, CV writing and completing job application forms. 

Year 12 & 13 - Students are supported by the Widening Participation Team, who offer support and advice to students and parents regarding the various university applications. Students will also have the chance to meet with apprenticeship organisations.
