As our students progress through school they learn about careers and work related learning through a bespoke programme of study that is matched to their needs.
Our subject team plan an exciting and innovative programme of careers for our learners, ensuring students have the opportunities to experience, participate and learn about the opportunities available to them when they leave school.
We use the SEND Gatsby benchmarks for guidance and to measure the progress students make.
Our students also follow a Life Skills Programme which helps them to learn skills for the future and prepare them for adulthood.
Please note: Parents should contact their child's class team for more information regarding Career Opportunities and raise any queries in their child's Annual Review Meeting.

Derby City, as an Opportunity Area, is currently developing employer engagement, auditing all the employment and career options available to the young people in the City and putting together an action plan for improvement.
Students at St Andrew's Academy are exposed to "The World of Work" from Year 7 until they leave the school. The curriculum is designed to equip students with the knowledge, skills and understanding about the world of work.
We work with external agencies such as MENACP and CEC who deliver sessions looking at basic life skills in the workplace and work readiness for our students.
