Careers Education and Guidance is delivered in Citizenship lessons and aims to help students develop the knowledge and skills needed to make successful choices.
A Careers Advisor visits the school weekly and runs break and lunch time sessions to help pupils with their choices. The external Careers Advisor is complemented by an internal Careers Advisor who is available on a daily basis to work with the young people at Queensbury.
The Academy hosts an annual Careers Convention and also organises a variety of other events. The well-equipped Careers Library is an excellent source of information for pupils.
Year 10 pupils are involved in a programme of work experience to help prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
