Teachers

All subjects at Rudheath Senior Academy are expected to link their curriculum to real-world career paths. This will be delivered in lessons at each key stage and through trips, employer visits and encounters.

Employers

Rudheath Senior Academy recognises the value that employers can provide to learners’ education and decision making about their future. We therefore welcome offers of support and involvement from employers across all industries.  We host several Careers events throughout the academic year, including mock interviews, career talks and a biennial careers fair; employers, apprenticeship / training providers and representatives from Further and Higher Education are welcome to get involved. Please contact Mrs H Rooney ( admin@rudheathsenioracademy.org.uk ) if your organisation would like to engage with the CEIAG at Rudheath Senior Academy.
