The Marsh Academy

Where people shine


It's your future
At The Marsh Academy we are committed to helping you with your career choice, whatever that may be.  We offer a comprehensive careers programme designed to introduce you to a range of future options and you will be supported every step of the way with a series of one-to-one and group sessions with teaching staff, a careers specialists and with our range of external partners from businesses and places of study.

Students in Years 10, 11 and Post-16 are offered a series of careers interviews with our dedicated Careers Advisor and appointments are also available on request. Whether you know exactly what you want to do after School or Post-16 or if you feel you have no idea, you will be supported to find solutions that are right for you.

We also offer a Careers Fair in which local and national employees come to speak to students about the world of work and the potential employment opportunities. We also ask business leaders and local employees to come in and give mock interviews to students as a way of preparing them for the real life situations they may face.  Additionally, we provide a range of opportunities for you to learn about different college and university courses, professions and apprenticeships through a programme of presentations, the UCAS Convention, our Careers Day and discussions with ex-students.

Tracking your progress
As a school, we use CXK as our provider of independent and impartial advice.  They keep a record of discussions with pupils, including information on your aspirations, goals, choices, and any changes to your journey. This is shared with the Careers Team in school with your consent.  School records will also track and monitor data on what Careers opportunities you have accessed, including information on visitors you have interacted with, visits to external sites, presentations you have been offered from other places of study or employment etc.  Overall, our provision is monitored by the Tracker Tool which helps us to ensure we are meeting 8 government benchmarks known as the Gatsby Benchmarks, ensuring that we offer our students the very best career information and guidance.  This information, together, helps to inform our future planning for careers provision.

 We use Compass and Tracker to monitor our provision against the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks.  These provide a basis on which we can amend, update and improve our Careers Provision Map in subsequent years, ensuring we are making progress towards delivering a full and broad careers offer to our students.  We also use Navigate which is a tracking and monitoring tool designed to follow each students’ careers journey throughout the school.  Navigate allows us to monitor the impact of our Careers Provision on each student from years 7-13.

Our Careers Policy and Careers Map are reviewed and updated every June/July, ready for implementation in September.  Our next review takes place in June 2019.
