Careers Part One

Woodfield Academy is fully embracing the eight Gatsby Benchmarks for Careers Education.  Careers education is incorporated into all year groups to stimulate students’ interests in life and the world of work based on the 8 keys areas.

For further information on the Gatsby Benchmarks please click here: Gatsby Benchmarks

The main aims of careers provision at Woodfield Academy is to develop the skills, attitudes and abilities of our students to enable them to make effective decisions about their future education, training, employment and life as an adult member of society.
We aim to ensure that all students have an equal entitlement to high quality careers education, information, advice and guidance, that:

  • raises aspirations;
  • empowers our pupils to plan and be inspired for their own futures;
  • helps them understand the world of work and the personal and academic  skills required to be successful within it;
  • helps them to explore a broad range of career options;
  • actively promotes equality of opportunity and challenge stereotypes;
  • provides for the particular needs and aspirations of pupils, as well as offering a basic entitlement to broad areas of experience;
  • equips pupils with the skills and knowledge for a fast-changing world;

Careers Part Two

Woodfield Academy is an active member of the Worcestershire Enterprise Adviser Network which supports the development of Worcestershire’s Future Workforce through employer related careers activity. We are fully committed to ensuring that all of our students acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to manage their learning and career progression.

We are very keen to engage with businesses and employers to help us inform and educate our students.  This links directly with Gatsby Benchmark 5 (Encounters with Employers and Employees) and Gatsby Benchmark 6 (Experiences of Workplaces).

We provide many opportunities for businesses to interact with students: careers carousels, skills workshops, presentations etc.
