At Walker Riverside Academy, we aim to equip the students with skills to face the challenges of the world beyond school and to make them aware of the part they can play in the wider community. The Academy’s CEIAG programme (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) exists to prepare students for the choices, changes and transitions affecting their future education, training and employment. The careers programme is concerned with preparation for adult life and with the acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills, which have relevance for the future whilst raising aspirations for all our students.

The aims of our careers programme are to:

Every student should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a careers adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. These should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They should be expected for all students but should be timed to meet their individual needs.


Our Careers and Cultural Capital Lead is Ms Kate Perry.
