National Careers Week 1st March - 5th March 2021

National Careers Week (NCWCIC) is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK.

The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education. With youth unemployment remaining high and employers citing that young people are ill prepared with the basic skills needed for employment, there has never been a bigger need for careers guidance to be promoted and celebrated in education.

National Careers Week is the perfect platform to advise and inspire the next generation as they enter the world of work. The week encourages education providers to bring together students, local employers and advisers through careers events and activities.

Please see the National Careers Week website for further information and video.


CEIAG (Careers Education Independent Impartial Advice and Guidance)

At Burscough Priory Academy, we aim to ensure that all of our students in KS4 are given the opportunity to enquire about their futures.

Year 9 Pupils

Pupils are required to think about their GCSE options and the sorts of careers that particular subjects might lead them into.

Year 10 Pupils

From the middle of Year 10, students are encouraged to be aware of the wide variety of colleges that will be available for them to apply for in the autumn of Year 11.

Year 11 Pupils

Assemblies and Drop in sessions are offered from the colleges and apprenticeship providers to ensure that pupils are given an opportunity to see and discuss which options are available to best suit them.  Additionally many skills sessions are provided within the PSCHE curriculum and from the colleges to support the writing of CV and personal statement ready for interviews.
