Unsworth Academy

Post-16 Advice, Guidance & Careers

During their time in Key stage 4, learners are offered a wealth of information and advice regarding their post-16 choices. With government requirements, all learners must remain in education or employment with training until the age of 18.

Within school, an independent careers advisor will organise appointments with all learners to discuss their options and future, if you want an appointment organising, please speak to your form tutor or Mr Orrell directly.

Year 11 learners are also given presentations and advice within school in September to show what local colleges have to offer learners of Unsworth Academy. If you want to see these presentations or view their websites click the links below.
