At TQEA we have a comprehensive careers’ programme covering a wide range of opportunities and options for students to find out about and then investigate further.  We measure and assess the impact of our careers’ programme on pupils by the % of positive destinations students achieve when leaving TQEA and compliance with the Gatsby benchmarks.


Students are entitled to leave TQEA with the ability to compete nationally and globally in their chosen career. They will be given a wide range of information and advice about a range of careers throughout their education pathway.
