OBA’s careers education strategy is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to make informed decisions about their future. We believe that by creating long-term industry partnerships and fully embedding careers education into Academy life, we can give students a comprehensive understanding of the various career options available to them.
Our strategy is based on labour market information and the local industry strategy, ensuring that the opportunities we offer students are relevant and in-demand. We are committed to mobilising all departments to take an active role in delivering careers education and make effective use of community and business partnerships.
We understand that developing social and emotional skills is an essential part of preparing students for success in their future careers. Through our careers education programme, students will have the opportunity to develop important skills such as communication, problem-solving, resilience, and leadership. These skills will not only help them in their job search and career advancement, but also in their personal and professional relationships.
Overall, our careers education strategy is designed to empower students to take control of their own futures and to succeed in their chosen careers. By providing them with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need, we are confident that our students will be well-prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
