A young person’s career reflects the progress they make in learning and work. It is part of the vision of South Axholme Academy that all students have a planned programme of activities to help them choose pathways that are right for them. Students when they leave South Axholme Academy will be able to manage their careers, sustain employment and achieve personal and economic wellbeing throughout their lives.
Students leaving South Axholme Academy will be Ready, Resilient, Respectful in their future career journeys.
The main aims of careers provision at South Axholme Academy are to:

When thinking about career plans, it is useful to consider local Labour Market Information (LMI).
Labour market information tells you about the workplace or labour market. It describes the condition of the labour market, past and present, as well as future projections. It makes clear where work opportunities are increasing or decreasing, what occupations exist, what you need to study to become a professional in that occupation, what is required to take up an occupation, how you can find a job, change job or progress in a career.
LMI for All brings together existing national sources of high quality labour market information that can inform people’s choices about their careers. After successfully completing its pilot stage, LMI for All has been given full project status.
