Parents and Carers Information

At Trinity Academy Bradford we believe that careers education helps our students develop the knowledge and skills they need to make successful choices, manage transitions in learning and move into work. Through guidance our students are able to make the decisions about learning and work that are right for them.

Careers education forms an integral part of our taught and co-curricular offer to students. Careers is delivered via the life curriculum, tutorial programme and bespoke events, school visits and assemblies.

We encourage parental involvement at all stages of the career’s curriculum. Parents and carers who have any careers related questions are encouraged to contacted l.wright@bradford.trinitymat for further guidance. The Careers information on the school’s website is designed to be informative and accessible to both students and their parents.

The resources below were specifically designed to help parents and carers further support their child’s careers education.
