At King's Academy Ringmer, we are committed to ensuring that all of our students have access to high quality information, guidance and opportunities in their careers programme in order to prepare them for their next step.

We ensure that every student at Kings Academy Ringmer receives the highest quality and most recent Careers Information, Education, Advice and Guidance. We check our provision against the Gatsby Benchmarks to ensure our students are well prepared for the opportunities and challenges of the twenty-first century world of work. 

Every student should leave school prepared for life in the twenty-first century. This means ensuring that young people are given opportunities to develop and recognise the values, skills and behaviours to help them fulfil their potential.   All students should see the link between their learning and future career. High quality careers advice from impartial professionals ensures that students receive unbiased support, as well as recognising that young people want and need to be well informed when making subject and career decisions (Department for Education March 2015).
