Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Careers Education

Career education and learning is important here at Oasis Academy Brightstowe.

A career is a young person’s journey through education, learning and employment.

Our students will have many different opportunities throughout their career, and it is our job to ensure we equip them with the confidence and range of skills to live happy and successful lives in a competitive and ever-changing world.

Through our careers education and learning programme, we support our young people to make informed choices and to be able to deal successfully with transitions—both whilst they are here at Brightstowe, and as they go out into the world beyond our walls. On average, Britons experience around 9 points in their lives where they have to make decisions about employment and learning, and we want our students at Brightstowe to be able to make independent, empowered choices for their future at every stage.

Below is an outline of the key events and opportunities we offer students at each stage of their journey through secondary education. Click on the year group number to read more detail about our programmes in that year group.
