Work-Related Learning and Careers

At Walthamstow Academy, we want to do more than just help our students gain excellent qualifications. We are preparing our students for adult life and all that it entails. Our Work-Related Learning programme is designed to be a journey from age 11 to age 18. At every stage in this journey our students will gain experience, advice, and vital skills to prepare them for their future careers. Our Work-Related Learning programme provides the link between what we do in school and our students’ next steps into the adult world.

Our careers roadmap summarises this journey and the year group areas below explain each step in more detail.
