At Yewlands Academy we want your child to be successful. Your child embarks on their career journey from Y7, they make their option choices in Year 9, Work Experience in Year 10 and Post-16 options in Year 11. 

Parents and carers are significant in helping their child make career choices and there are many ways that you can help: 

  • Discuss future career ideas and encourage them to explore all available options enabling them to make their own choices 
  • Encourage your child to take full advantage of the resources available at school 
  • Attend Careers/Post-16 events 
  • Motivate your child to develop their skills through education, hobbies, interests, work experience
