Academy’s ca­reers gold award

Sunderland Echo - - Features -

A Sun­der­land school has cel­e­brated clinch­ing gold for ca­reers ed­u­ca­tion.

Kepier academy in Houghton achieved the Qual­ity in Ca­reers Stan­dard Gold Award for ca­reers ed­u­ca­tion, in­for­ma­tion, ad­vice and guid­ance pro­vi­sion within the school.

The award recog­nises the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of the staff to en­sure all learn­ers are equipped with the skills re­quired and val­ued by em­ploy­ers.

Ca­reers Guid­ance Of­fi­cer Emma Wat­son said: “It’s great news for learn­ers and prospec­tive learn­ers as they can be con­fi­dent that they will gain the sup­port and ad­vice they need when mak­ing de­ci­sions about their fu­ture and de­velop the skills that will help them be a suc­cess in the world of work.”

She said it was a long and very thor­ough process to gain the gold award and the school had to first gain bronze and then sil­ver awards. They had to meet a num­ber of re­quire­ments and pro­vide ev­i­dence.
