At the Academy Selsey, students have access to the independent careers advise using Elev8.  These opportunities are present to year 11s; through face to face guidance sessions whilst Years 8-10 have the opportunity to research chosen careers through assemblies, Careers Thursday and PSHE workshops. We also work with a range of external partnership agencies, including the NCOP, which aims to increase the number of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education by 2020,  and the Local Enterprise Partnership, through Coast2Capital.
