Student Careers

Welcome to the Student Careers
Felixstowe Academy is committed to providing our students with a comprehensive programme of Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG). It is vital that we make sure our students are able to receive the guidance they need to make sensible choices as they move through each stage of their education and onto their chosen career.

Many students may leave unsure of their exact career path, however they will leave knowing the following:
  • Strengths and weaknesses.
  • How to use a range of up to date resources to help research suitable careers, ideas and decision making.
  • Help with interpreting career information.
  • One to one support to help explore career ideas and gain confidence.
  • Ongoing sessions to improve skills e.g. CV and cover writing, interview techniques and what to do next.
We endeavour to follow the CDI Framework for careers, employability and enterprise education 7-19 (November 2015), and all additional guidance from the Department of Education and Ofsted. We believe that every student should be prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life and that this is an important element of the curriculum.

Alongside the support of our Careers Coordinator, parents and carers also have a responsibility to support their child. You as a parent should have an active role in exploring options and choices, as this will impact on the rest of your child’s life.

We are enthusiastic to engage with businesses and organisations to enhance our careers education programme for our students.

If you are interested in working in partnership with us or keen to offer opportunities to our students or academy, please contact our CEIAG Coordinator Ms Reilly via email on or via telephone on 01394 288228
