At The Bourne Academy, all students are given the information, guidance and skills they need to make good choices for their future. All careers research indicates that parents/carers are the number one influence in the career plans of their child and from Year 7 onwards students will be offered a variety of opportunities to develop their career aspirations.   The Bourne Academy employs a full time professionally qualified careers guidance practitioner and a full time work experience coordinator.

Students will have access to a range of careers support delivered through a variety of ways such as interactive workshops, drama productions, careers fairs, employer talks, guest speakers, business mentoring and trips to colleges and Universities.  All students will have a one to one guidance appointment delivered by an impartial qualified careers adviser in Years 11, 12 and 13.  Students can request a guidance appointment at any time throughout their academic life and students will be offered support at key transition points such as Year 9 options, Year 11 career planning and into the Academy 6th Form.  Parents are able to attend appointments and careers guidance specialists will be at parent evenings to provide any further careers support.
