Welcome to our Careers and World of Work Pages
Here at The Langley Academy we organise a variety of careers and world of work related learning events throughout the year. These include visits to local companies like O2 and British Airways; Business Enterprise and mentoring with local companies like CA Technologies, Hilton Heathrow T5 and Lease Plan, as well as invited guest speakers who aim to inform and inspire our students.
We hold an annual Careers Fair in our atrium each March and Year 9 students attend an external Slough Aspire Careers event organised by Aspire and Learning to Work in February.
We have a Careers Area with resources for all students to access at any-time, this is located just off the atrium in front of the Library. Students have access to an external Careers Advisor from ‘Adviza’ as well as drop in sessions and 1-2-1 meetings with the Academy’s Careers Officers.
The Exam Results Helpline, delivered by the National Careers Service, will be available in August to provide additional support to students (and their parents) as they receive their exam results.
Callers to the helpline will have direct access to experienced careers advisers who can advise on all the different options available to them.
Information, advice and guidance will be available on a wide range of qualifications including A-levels, GCSEs, BTECs, Apprenticeships and other vocational options. Other support will be available on topics such as vocational learning routes, university, gap year, moving away from home, re-sits and student finance.
The helpline will be available from:
A level results day on 16th August on 0800 100 900 from 8am to 10pm, 7 days a week.
Calls are free from landlines and most mobile numbers.
