Careers and Enterprise
Northampton Academy is committed to providing our students with a programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) for all students in years 7-13. The programme the Academy delivers makes a major contribution to preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
Northampton Academy follows the National ACEG Framework for 11-19 in England (updated February 2014) and other relevant guidance from DCSF, QCA and Ofsted as it appears.
Further information about the Careers and Guidance can be found in the Careers policy here
