Careers Programme Information

Bourne End Academy is committed to preparing all learners to become future leaders for the global economy. We aim to prepare our students to go on to further or higher education, degree apprenticeships to enable them to make a meaningful impact to local, national and the global economy.

Work and life readiness are key attributes that our students will develop from both tutor time and curriculum learning alike. Our bespoke Professional Development programme ensures that our learners will develop key skills throughout their secondary education and this is mapped against the Gatsby Benchmarks and the Career Development Framework from the CDI.
