Careers Information

Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance


Our careers advisor will work with the Careers Leader to organise meetings for students and actively promote the options available.

The careers support programme at The Skipton Academy focuses on encouraging each student to consider a wide range of career pathways and provides the support to make their goals a reality.

We achieve this by offering students timely independent careers guidance during one to one career interviews for every student in KS4.

The Skipton Academy is committed to providing careers support and advice.
