Careers, Information, Advice and Guidance

At Chiltern Academy we are passionate about giving pupils the tools and opportunities needed to be successful at the next stages of their life. 

We know that helping young people establish meaningful and aspirational goals is essential to get them ready for the future.

Over the coming years as the school grows we will develop a comprehensive CEIAG programme to ensure pupils receive all of the right support, advice and guidance in helping them to go on to post sixteen education or employment.


Our non-negotiable commitment to further education

We have a commitment that every Chiltern Academy pupil will have a visit and experience of university or an appropriate further education establishment before they finish year 9.

We acknowledge that not every child will go to university, but we endeavour to ensure that those that wish to have no barriers; real or perceived, which would prevent them going.
