Careers

Have you thought about your future?

College? Sixth Form? Apprenticeship?

What is your ideal job? What careers interest you?

At Thornhill Academy we strive to offer impartial and realistic careers information, advice and guidance to all of our pupils from year 7 to year 11. We recognise that our pupils will be entering a very competitive labour market and because of this, we aim to equip all of our pupils with, not only the knowledge they will need, but also skills such as financial capability, enterprise and employability.

Each year group page contains information and resources that will be used to deliver the CEIAG program in school and that pupils may use independently to find out more.

Please contact Mrs Crane on crane.g@thornhillacademy.com for more information regarding careers and post-16 transition.

We strive to achieve the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks at Thornhill Academy. These are:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters for further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance
