Careers advice

Here at Olive AP Academy – Suffolk (Central) we are committed to preparing our students for successful transition from our academy to further study, apprenticeships and work. During their time at our academy students in years 8-11 will go on work experience, visit local businesses, have mock interviews, learn how to write a CV and complete college applications, have one-to-one meetings with a careers adviser and go on college visits.

Our students in years 8-11:

• find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point
• hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options evenings, assemblies and group discussions and taster events
• understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

Further advice and careers support for young people can be found on Suffolk County Council’s website.
