A March school is one of three in Cambridgeshire to be recognised for the careers guidance they give to their students.
Cambridgeshire councillor Simon Bywater, chairman of the Children and Young People Committee, will be presenting the awards to teachers and young people from Neale-Wade Academy at 2.30pm on Friday November 10.
Cllr Bywater said: “These schools and colleges have demonstrated that they are providing careers education, information, advice and guidance which is well planned and delivered to help students to make informed choices about their future.
“We are fortunate in the county that several academy trusts and colleges are employing guidance advisers, but this is only part of what schools and colleges need to do to ensure that all young people are prepared, resilient and have the skills to move through an often unpredictable career journey.
“This award demonstrates that careers advice and guidance is robust and supports the learning and development of students.”
The award presentation will take place in the Kreis Viersen room at Shire Hall, Cambridge.
Eight more schools and colleges are also working towards the award.
