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.

We work closely with SEMLEP (South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership) and in conjunction with the Careers & Enterprise Company, in order to keep abreast of all the latest career and industry trends. In addition, Northampton Academy enjoys a successful partnership with the University of Northampton, providing a host of enterprise opportunities and skills workshops, benefitting students through every Key Stage. This association also provides support from NCOP (National Collaborative Outreach Programme).

With this in mind, Practice Reasoning have prepared for you the Complete Guide to Psychometric Tests to explain what they are, how they are used, and how to successfully complete them.
