Careers and Employability
At MEA, our careers programme is based on Gatsby Benchmarks which is a key framework for practice in school and colleges.
The table below shows the range of careers and employability opportunities available to students across the whole school.
Each opportunity has been signposted to the following Gatsby Benchmarks:
|Gatsby benchmark||Year 7|
