Careers Education and Guidance

At Wyvern Academy we believe that a good programme of Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) has a positive impact on students – giving them the skills, knowledge and understanding to manage their own life-long learning and career development specifically

  • Develop themselves and their aspirations through careers and work-related education
  • Find out about careers and the world of work, building strong connections with employers
  • Develop skills for career well-being and employability

Our Careers Co-ordinator, Mrs K Phillips is available throughout the year offering advice and guidance to all year groups – and parents on request. If you’d like to contact Mrs Phillips please do not hesitate to email at

Cath Gibbins is our Acting Careers Lead and can be contacted through the school reception on 01325 351377 or by email:
