Work Experience & Careers

Welcome to Wilmington Academy Post 16

At Wilmington Academy, we are incredibly proud that all of our Year 13 Leavers in 2019 left us with clear progression pathways. All of these students are either in education, employment or training.

Those choosing to go on to higher education were able to secure their first choice universities and courses. Apprenticeship placements covered a wide variety of industries including accountancy, engineering, childcare and ICT.

What did Year 13 go on to do in 2019?

University 51.8%
Employment 39.3%
Apprenticeship 7.2%
College 1.8%

Engaging with Local Employers for Regular Work Experience

We at Wilmington recognise the importance of all students taking part in work experiences that both broaden their horizons and develop their skills.
We have offered several students the opportunity to work with professionals to support their studies.
