Dartmouth Academy has a crucial role to play in preparing pupils for transitions for their next stage of education, training or employment. Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) are an important and integral part of all pupils’ entitlement and learning here at the Academy to aid their personal development.

Through a planned careers education programme, we are committed to providing the appropriate activities and experiences to enable pupils to make well-informed decisions and successful transitions in life and work. We support pupils to prepare for their preferred transitional pathway whether that is to continue with further education, employment, training or living independently. We have a person-centred approach to pupil outcomes through our EHCP annual reviews process, where we work with all stakeholders to shape clear and ambitious targets for pupils to prepare for their next steps.
We work closely with the local authority due to the vulnerable nature of some of our pupils with Education, Health and Care plans in place, ensuring that we know of all the services available to support pupils, to access these and share this knowledge amongst our community.

To employers we have worked with

Dartmouth Academy are grateful for the support and encouragement from employers, both local and further afield. Our pupils have benefitted enormously from a wealth of expertise and skills from a wide range of employers, including the Army, the Royal Navy, the RAF, the Fire Service, retailers such as Tesco supermarket, hospitality venues including The Royal Castle Hotel as well as the varied roles within the NHS. This is not an exhaustive list, but we are grateful to ALL of our employers that have worked with us over the years. We welcome enquiries from others that would be interested in supporting the aspirations of our young people.
