Careers and Life after Isca

All students at Isca Academy receive independent and impartial careers information, advice and guidance to help them make the right choices about their future.
Students will have Careers Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) delivered through their PSHE lessons in Key Stage 3.
During Key Stage 4, students have additional access to Careers Guidance and will have the opportunity to speak to a Careers Southwest Advisor to discuss future choices, plus sessions with Exeter College advisors and other Further Education providers.

Isca Academy works closely with its partners in the city to ensure all students make the right choices about their next steps.
In 2011, 97% of Isca students progressed to further education, vocational training, or the workplace.  This is an exceptional achievement and testament to the hard work and focused attitude of Isca students.
We host specific Careers Evenings and Careers Days, where students have the opportunity to talk to specialists about their professions; we hope this will be continued and mirrored across the city.

 Post-16 Options
There are a wide range of opportunities for students leaving Isca Academy at 16. Our staff help students to make the right choices and will support them as much as they need throughout the process.

The majority of our students progress on to Exeter College when they leave Isca. Exeter College is an Outstanding (Ofsted 2012 and 2014) establishment that provides a huge range of opportunities for the city’s young people. Alternatively, depending on their needs, some of our students may decide to go to one of the city’s Independent sixth forms, a sixth form outside the city, or Bicton College.  Some seek employment with training.
Many of our students progress on to some of the best universities in the country.
