Primary Academy

Careers and employability

At Mansfield Primary Academy we GENERATE ambitious individuals that aim to achieve their dreams. 

We ASPIRE children to be the best they can be through developing a range of skills required to access higher education and prepare for adulthood.

In an increasingly connected world children are given the skills and experiences to be able to work TOGETHER as a team to become good all round citizens.

Children ENQUIRE about a range of careers and life skills through engaging enterprise projects where they are able to identify attributes needed to be successful in the wider world and community.

Throughout the year pupils experience guest visits from several different careers including but not limited to: The armed forces, emergency services, vets, charities, postal workers, sports coach, authors, Capital One and many more. During the visits pupils are able to enquire about the different skills needed in each career. Our pupils take part in a number of workshops that help to support teamwork, independence and budgeting skills helping to support them for adulthood.


In Nottinghamshire currently career growth sectors are in: 

Construction, Creative & Digital, Food & Drink, Transport equipment manufacturing, visitor economy, Life Sciences, Low Carbon and Transport and Logistics.
