Careers Information Advice and Guidance

 The Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance programme at Cowley Academy enables our students to make a successful transition into further or higher education, apprenticeships and accredited training in employment. We offer objective and impartial advice from a range of talks, visits, activities and individual interviews.

We have a dedicated Careers Library located in the Common room near the main hall for careers information and guidance and all students are welcome to call in and see our Careers Lead, Mrs Barber at any time for an informal chat or make an appointment. Students are also invited to request an appointment with our independent Careers Adviser. 

Appointments can be made by contacting Mrs Barber:  or Ms Taylor

Frequently discussed topics include:

• Option choices in Year 9 or plans for after Year 11

• How to choose the right course and university or Intermediate and Higher Apprenticeships

• Taster days, Workshops and Open Days

• Ideas to enhance your Personal Statement or Curriculum Vitae
