Careers and Post-16


We strongly believe that our students should all have access to high quality careers education, advice and guidance through all years and particularly at key transition times to explore the full range of opportunities available to them.

At Mo Mowlam Academy, we provide a wide range of careers support and activities.  Our careers programme includes one to one and small group interventions to prepare the students with the key skills they need enter further education, training and employment; opportunities to access vocational and work placements; support with visits and applications to providers; guidance from a member of staff trained to offer independent careers information, advice and guidance.

In addition to the above, our PSHE programme includes a wide range of careers, information, advice and guidance across all year groups. We also offer targeted activities such as visiting guest speakers from different vocational areas and employers, Further Education visits and talks. Any employers who are interested in becoming involved with the students at Mo Mowlam Academy please contact one of the Careers Leaders and we will be happy to arrange a visit.  

Headteacher, Rachel Glover, leads on the school careers programme.
