Astrea Academy is committed to ensuring all scholars have access to a range of providers to discuss both academic and non-academic routes that are available to them. This is as part of a holistic careers programme enabling all our scholars to make an informed choice about their post 16 provision. This is measured regularly against the careers standards of the Gatsby benchmarks using a Compass Assessment framework and evaluation with scholars, teachers and SLT as part of a progressive careers programme.
Astrea Academy Sheffield proactively seeks to build relationships with 6th form schools, colleges, apprenticeship providers, universities and employers as we plan our careers programme and conduct a variety of activities throughout the school year to ensure all our scholars have access to the most current and up to date careers information at key transition points and that providers have multiple opportunities to speak to scholars and their parents across Years 7 -11 to offer information on vocational, technical and apprenticeship qualifications and pathways.
Astrea Academy Sheffield ensures all staff involved in personal guidance and pastoral support and are up to date with their knowledge through a programme of Continuing Professional Development. Promoting diversity and challenging stereotypes is a key element of our careers provision. Working with local enterprise advisers who understand our culture, our diversity and our families is key to the success of this approach.
