The aim of our School Careers policy is develop the skills, attitudes and abilities of our students to enable them to make effective decisions about their future education, training and employment. Young people’s careers are forged out of their experience, progress and achievements in learning and work. All our students have access to a planned programme of Careers Education which provides opportunities to develop and apply the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to make realistic career decisions.

One of the features which distinguish Madeley Academy from other Schools is the quality of the partnership shared with industry. Financial sponsorship is a significant investment in the life and work of the School, but employers also make major contributions to the design, delivery and assessment of the curriculum.
A key strategy for Careers provision is to develop relationships with key employers in order that a range of support such as careers talks, the provision of work experience and curriculum-linked activities can be organised.
In addition, Madeley Academy work with a range of local employers to offer enrichments activities for students including mock interviews, employer speed dating and careers insight sessions. If you are interested in working with Madeley Academy on enrichment projects please contact the Careers department.
If you are a provider who would like to make Madeley Academy students aware of any education, training or apprenticeship opportunities, please refer to our Provider Access Policy ( link
