Careers Guidance & Inspiration Policy

Newmarket Academy views careers guidance and inspiration as integral to the work throughout the school. Our vision is to develop a learning community that broadens horizons and raises aspirations through meaningful and powerful links and contact with employers and local businesses.  Learners will develop and apply a range of employability skills throughout their time in school and develop knowledge and research skills to ensure future pathways are fully informed and allow a clear sense of direction.

• Lesson Observations
