Careers at BBG Academy

At BBG Academy all students receive a range of careers information through form time activities, assemblies, curriculum lessons and drop-down days. This includes online career searches, visits from employers or employees, charities, colleges, sixth forms, apprenticeship representatives and University students.  Students will take part in activities that are linked to specific industries such as STEM or general careers-based activities such as CV writing or employer desirable skills.

C&K Careers works with BBG Academy to provide students, from Year 7 to Year 11, with independent careers information, advice and guidance, helping students, when they need it, to make important decisions and choices about their future plans. Our careers adviser, Rachel Morgan is fully qualified in careers guidance and has many years of experience working with our students at BBG.
