Careers

Coronavirus update - For those Y11 and Y13 students affected by the school closure due to coronavirus, if you wish to contact Mrs Laite (who is a Level 6 qualified careers adviser) for a chat and some helpful careers advice, please fill in this form with your contact details and we will get back to you. Alternatively you can email careers@wathacademy.com.

Here at Wath Academy we have a dedicated careers team providing careers advice, information, education and guidance for all students from Year 7 though to Year 13. Our Activity Plan for 2019 - 20 is available as a PDF download at the bottom of the page. You can find key Ofsted and additional information about our provision in our careers policy, which is available to download in the policies section of our website.

Enquiries relating to careers provision should be directed to Mrs Laite, our Careers Leader; her role includes one-to-one careers interviews, creating and delivering careers lessons, activities such as work shadowing days, mock interview days, career fairs and employer engagement. Mrs Laite is based in the school library and is more than happy to be contacted in school if any further information is required and to help where possible. You can contact Mrs Laite by e-mail directed to careers@wathacademy.com or telephone (01709) 760222 Ext 161.

Start is a free, online careers platform designed to connect 11-18 year olds with their future career potential and is used by our students in Life Skills lessons.

The information pack is available to  download here.

Alumni

We are currently working to build our Alumni community, engage with ex-students and raise aspirations of current students. We hope that former students will get in touch and help us and support activities in school such as talks, work place visits, work experience and careers fairs.

Destinations Data

Wath Academy uses destinations data (where our students go and what they do after leaving school) to monitor and measure the effectiveness of our careers guidance and improve outcomes for young people in schools. Destinations data is available on the Department for Education website. Due to the complexity of gathering this data there is a delay between students leaving school and destinations data being published.
