Careers Education

Inspiring the next generation

At The Priory Ruskin Academy we pride ourselves in delivering the highest quality careers guidance - with a focus on inspiration and aspiration as much as advice. Our students access a range of activities and events to open their eyes to the exciting and wide ranging opportunities that exist beyond their time at the Academy - this includes inspirational speakers from the business world, apprenticeship workshops, visits to universities and our popular and diverse Careers Fair.

We are delighted that the Priory Ruskin Academy has successfully revalidated the Career Mark 6 Accreditation, an award that recognises the quality of Ruskin's careers programme from Year 7 to Year 13. Our independent and impartial career guidance gives our students the confidence and skills they need to choose the right path for them and go on to thrive in higher education and employment. We demonstrate that we provide an efficient and effective careers programme in all of the following areas:

Management: The effectiveness of our systems for planning, managing and integrating the whole programme

Guidance: The effectiveness of an integrated programme of advice, guidance and support

Curriculum: How effectively our curriculum supports the development of learners’ knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes

Information: The accessibility, relevance, importance and effectiveness of information, the acquisition of skills to research and evaluate to be able to make well informed and realistic career decisions
