Careers is an integral part of preparing students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. The process of personal and social development begins at home and continues through school into adult life. Careers can help prepare for the transitions and decisions affecting young peoples’ future education, training and life as adult members of society.
Therefore, our students will leave The Boulevard Academy well equipped with the ‘life skills’ that they will need to be successful in whatever pathway they choose. We have developed a programme, which all pupils will participate in order to raise aspirations.
Our Vision is:
It is part of the vision of The Boulevard Academy that all learners have a planned programme of activities to help them choose 14-19 pathways that are right for them and to be able to manage their careers, sustain employment and achieve personal and economic wellbeing throughout their lives.
Students will understand the knowledge, skills and attributes required for employability and have high career aspirations.
Hull Careers Hub
We are one of 35 Hull & East Yorkshire schools/colleges that make up the Hull & East Yorkshire Careers Hub. The Careers Hub was launched in September 2018 by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (Humber LEP) and the Careers & Enterprise Company, a central government funded organisation that works with schools nationally to promote a network between education and employers as well as support for careers education in schools. We were part of the original Hub formed in 2018 and remain in the new Hub from September 2021.
