Career Guidance & Aspirations

Capital City Academy is committed not only to meeting the statutory requirements, but to raising awareness of careers, employability, and work related learning amongst all pupils in a ‘whole school approach’.  With this in mind we offer a supportive, challenging, dynamic educational environment, where entrance into work or higher education is the status quo rather than the exception, where pupils feel they have the self-confidence, determination, integrity and resources for them to make more informed study and career decisions at key moments of choice and transition.

For any Careers related enquiries; please email - workrelatedlearning@capitalcityacademy.org

Start Programme - Help your child to explore their future

Help your child to explore their future

As part of our commitment to prepare students for a rapidly changing world, we are delighted to announce that we are using an innovative online resource called Start.

Start will help your child to connect with their future career potential, develop their employability and help them to explore future career and study options at school or at home.

How should my child use it?

We have asked students to create their own account for Start at school, but it is accessible anytime on computers and compatible mobile and tablet devices.

Your child will personalise their profile on Start with details about their skills, qualities, interests and work preferences. This provides a starting point for them to explore information matched to their personal preferences and interests. As they update their profile, Start will personalise this information, helping them to navigate the thousands of jobs, courses, providers and opportunities available. Start will help students to understand where they are on their journey and what’s important as they make their choices at GCSE, post-16 and post-18.

We encourage you to use Start with your child at home. Encourage them to rate jobs, qualifications, colleges or universities so that we can see their preferences in order to support them better.

What if you want to use Start yourself?

Parents can also use Start to find out more about jobs, training and study opportunities for yourself. Please do not log in using your child's user details and instead register yourself using the how to register for Start Parent instructions, creating your own username and password.


Please click on the links below to view instructions on how to register for Start.
