Careers Information

As part of our Fantastic Futures Curriculum we support MEA students by:

  • helping to prepare them for progression into employment or the next stage of their education
  • providing opportunities for students to connect with positive role models from the world of work and engage with local businesses to prepare for the future in a digital world
  • helping them develop entrepreneurial skills

Further information and more details about MEA's careers programme can be found in the downloads below.


At MEA, we use many different methods to measure and assess the impact of our careers programme. We do this do by:

  • Regularly evaluating our programme through the compass tool
  • Our NEET figures, which have been very positive over the years, due to the careers programme we have in place
  • Having a tracker for every year group to ensure that all students receive opportunities to develop their employability skills 
  • All curriculum areas completing annual evaluations
  • Students, staff and employers completing feedback forms after any career related event

For an insight into the successes of our former students, this brochure highlights case studies of a number of MEA students now sucessfully enjoying apprenticeships with Cardinal.
