Careers

The Dixons Cottingley Academy careers programme aims to provide all students with regular access to employers, expert guidance and workplace experiences to support students in making informed and educated decisions about their next steps. The careers programme is an integral element of the Dixons Cottingley Academy curriculum and careers information is interleaved with subject specific content.

Our commitment to careers provision extends beyond the legal minimum entitlement for students and is underpinned by the Gatsby framework with a commitment to meeting all eight benchmarks.

The intended outcomes of the careers programme include, but are not limited to:

  • Students will undertake various work related experiences
  • Students will reflect upon and refine their aspirations
  • Students will increase their knowledge of education, training and career opportunities
  • Students will develop a career plan to help them achieve their sentence and realise their potential

The careers long term plan can be found below, in addition to a link to ‘Start’: an online platform designed to support students and parents in transitioning to the next step of their career. If you require any support in accessing Start, or have any questions about the careers programme at Dixons Cottingley Academy, please contact Jessica Crolla, Assistant Principal
