Careers Guidance

At the Burton Academy, we want all of our learners to make a full contribution to their community, by progressing into meaningful further education, employment or training.


To support this intention, we provide all of our pupils with access to specialist careers advice and guidance, delivered by trained professionals from the Careers South West Group (CSW).  CSW is a not-for-profit social enterprise, delivering a range of services nationally. They provide the advice and guidance needed for young people to build upon their aspirations and turn it into achievement, unlocking potential and supporting our learners through key transition points. For further information about their range of services, please visit their website at
