Careers Guidance at The Academy, Selsey

The Academy, Selsey believe that through high-quality provision of careers education, information, advice and guidance, we can prepare our pupils for the world of work and opportunity to build a career beyond Year 11.

Students across both key stage 3 and 4 are actively involved in a wide variety of activities, lessons and workshops focussed on careers and their future.   We work with a range of external partnership agencies, including NCOP (National Collaborative Outreach Programme) which aims to increase the number of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education by 2020, and the Local Enterprise Partnership, through Coast2Capital.

The Careers Team at The Academy, Selsey is made up of:

Mr Nick Brown (Deputy Headteacher and Careers Lead)

Miss Chris Willshire (Careers Co-ordinator)

Measuring Impact
