The Quality in Careers Standard Award

Hollingworth Academy holds the prestigious Quality in Careers Standard (QiCS) quality mark. The Quality in Careers Standard is the national quality award for careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in schools, colleges and work-based learning. There are six key areas that are assessed in order to achieve this in full, each underpinned by the principles of equality and diversity and raising aspirations.

This externally accredited award acknowledges the commitment staff at Hollingworth make to deliver consistently high quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) to all pupils. This ensures that our NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) figures for past pupils at the school always compare very favourably to the national average.
