Careers Programme

At The Coppice Spring Academy we recognise that students with SEND face unique and individual challenges in accessing further learning and employment. In response we follow a structured and bespoke careers programme over and above that offered in a typical mainstream school. We place a high regard on ensuring that each student is aware of all the options available to them and assist them in following the pathway that is most appropriate to them. We pride ourselves on maintaining contact with our students after they have left us and provide assistance/guidance should it be required.
