More about the GDST

The Belvedere Academy


Page currently under review


In order to support our vision of helping our pupils find their purpose, we need the support of both the public and private sectors. The careers programme is the bridge between education and employment. Therefore our pupils need to understand what skills and qualifications are required to be successful in the workplace.

There are a number of ways you can engage with us at Belvedere Academy. 

For more information or to arrange a meeting please contact Mrs Traynor, Careers Leader 



Workshops will be held throughout the year

Virtual or in person Careers Talks

Careers Talks are designed to inspire and inform groups of either 20 pupils in a lesson, or a whole school year via an assembly

They would cover the presenter’s:

1. Qualifications.

2. Good and bad parts of their job.

3. Pay and Benefits.

4. Their opinion on what employers want from young people

Careers Visits

We would like smaller groups pupils in Year 10 and 11 who are interested in a specific career path to be able to visit your place of work with a member of our teaching staff. The purpose is to inspire and expose pupils to different working environments

Work Experience

Every Year 12  pupil has to complete 5 days of experience. 

Work Experience 

We are hoping that all our Year 12 pupils will be able to take part in face-to-face work experience this academic year.  All pupils are encouraged to complete a week of work experience, in order to help them develop knowledge of the workplace and gain an understanding of the skills employers are looking for. 

 All pupils will be in Year 12, and aged 16 and over.  

Placements usually run from Monday - Friday, approximately 9-5, however, you may wish to make amendments to these times, in discussion with the pupil.

If you would be able to offer one or more placements, please let us know by replying to  It would be helpful to have a bit of information about your company, and what the placement could entail, alongside any restrictions or requirements you may have.

It is important for our pupils to gain access to quality work placements. We understand the impact work experience can have in supporting their UCAS or applications for employment. If you could offer a placement please contact Carmel Traynor to arrange.
