Careers

The Woodlands Academy Success Beyond School programme will offer experiences and challenges that build skills and create awareness to prepare young people for life post-16.

At Woodlands Academy, we are focused on ensuring all our KS4 pupils are given both the appropriate academic skills & knowledge, and the necessary real-life skills that will ensure the best outcomes for them when they leave the Academy.

Our Success Beyond Schools programme has been developed using our own experience working with young people, guiding them through Key Stage 4 and on to post 16 provision. It is informed by the Gatsby Benchmarks; forming a stable, effective and appropriate careers programme, along with the Preparing for Adulthood (PfA) outcomes, which broadens the programme by including the development of life skills such as:

• keeping good health

• community inclusion

• social awareness of rules and structures
