Wednesfield School strikes gold with award
A Wolverhampton school has been recognised for how it supports students.
Wednesfield High Specialist Engineering Academy claimed the gold standard award in the national Quality in Careers Standard by Prospects part of Shaw Trusts.
It was handed out to schools or education providers who can demonstrate the importance they place on careers and the support given to their students.
Niki Carpenter, head of the school, said: "We are thrilled to have achieved Gold Standard for the national Quality in Careers Standard awarded by Prospects.
"At Wednesfield, we recognise the important role school plays in helping students develop their knowledge, skills and experience so they can go out into the world and achieve personal success.
"This award has provided a flexible framework that enabled us to audit our work on careers and ensure our students are receiving advice, practical support and experience so they are prepared for the next stage of their education, employment, self-employment or training.”
Formerly known as the Prospects Quality Award in CEIAG, the Quality in Careers Standard is designed to accredit good practice and encourage development in educational facilities.
The academy on Lichfield Road is part of the University of Wolverhampton Multi Academy Trust.
