Careers Guidance & UCAS Support at Sedgehill Academy
Our principal aim is to instil in our students the confidence and resilience required to make informed, broad-minded, and ambitious decisions about their current and future pathways. We fervently believe that every student should feel empowered, confident in their ability to reach their aspirations, and unfettered by their circumstances or external expectations.
Commencing in Year 12, we actively encourage our students to explore a plethora of post-18 avenues, providing unwavering support as they identify the most suitable choice tailored to their unique aspirations. Recognising the individuality of each student – their distinct talents, needs, and interests – we endeavour to ensure they are well-versed with the myriad of opportunities awaiting them post-Year 13.
For those with university aspirations, we promote a holistic view of higher education. Rather than seeing it merely as a stepping stone, we inspire them to embrace learning for the sheer joy of it, encouraging them to pursue subjects they are truly passionate about. For those seeking apprenticeships, we guide them in pinpointing the optimal level and employer, ensuring their placement aligns with where they can truly flourish. If direct employment is the choice, our team offers invaluable assistance with job searches and application processes. And for those contemplating a gap year, we provide insights into the extensive options at their disposal.
