The Aylesbury Vale Academy is keen to ensure that students are equipped with the skills and knowledge to investigate, research and enter their chosen professions. The Aylesbury Vale Academy strives to provide all learners with careers education, information, advice and guidance in all years.

We are constantly reviewing and improving our careers education and guidance in line with the Gatsby benchmarks.  The next review of the strategy will be published July 2023.
