BCA CAREERS ADVICE

GUIDANCE

Big Creative Academy is committed to providing high quality careers advice to all its students. We have a highly qualified and experienced careers advisor as well as robust team of support in our student services hub.

Our impartial Careers Guidance can help and support young people by providing:
  • One to one sessions
  • Email advice
  • Career planning and information
  • CV writing
  • Interview techniques
  • Work experience support
  • Job Search skills
  • Exploring opportunities
  • Online careers resources
  • UCAS application support
  • Advice on student finance
  • Apprenticeship application support
  • Group tutorials and workshops

The academy has many industry links which our students get to make the most out of throughout their time here. They have many visits from and to employers in their first year, which then continues in their second year along with a meaningful industry work placement.

We are actively working towards achieving the Gatsby Benchmarks.

POLICYPLAN

We welcome any prospective Partners/Employers that would like to work with us. We are always looking for ways to expand our links for students to have meaningful encounters with employers and employees within the creative industries.

We would also like to welcome any universities or other higher educational institutions to work with us and our students – helping to give them the best chance into higher education.
