Employability and further education

A key principle behind our vision for the Archer Academy is the need to equip our students to tackle the demands of 21st century life, and to work closely with employers and universities to ensure that we are developing students with relevant skills, qualifications and experience.

We have therefore developed an approach to employability which focuses on providing advice and guidance on careers, subject options, further and higher education and training opportunities. Students are offered workplace opportunities and university visits within both Key Stage 3 and 4, and are given the opportunity to develop a range of applied skills including time-keeping, professional communication and team working.
