At Melior Academy we recognise the important role school plays in helping students develop their knowledge, skills and experience so they can go out into the world and achieve personal success. This award demonstrates commitment to young learners, ensuring students are receiving advice, practical support and experience so they are prepared for the next stage of their education, employment, self-employment or training, and is is awarded to schools and education providers who can demonstrate the importance they place on careers and how they support students to make decisions about their life after school.
Melior is delighted that we have been recognised for our outstanding careers work and have been awarded the national Quality in Careers Standard award under licence by Ixion (Part of the Shaw Trust Group) – July 2022.
Achieving the national Quality in Careers Standard shows that we, the Principal, Careers Leader, governors and leadership team embrace, promote and endorse quality careers education and recognise the part it plays in the overall success of the school and its students. We offer a range of activities to introduce students to the world of work and help them make decisions about life after school. These activities include college taster days, careers fairs, workshops delivered by employers, trips and visits to workplaces and many more!
We are a Good school (Ofsted Rating), continually working to improve the chances and opportunities of all our students, recognising the importance of preparing students for their future careers and shall continue to do so.
