Careers Information Advice and Guidance is a vital part of the education of our pupils here at Co-op Academy Bebington.

We are committed to delivering a full Careers Programme to fulfil the Government’s Careers Strategy. In July 2022 we were delighted to be awarded The Quality in Careers Standard (QiCS) – The national quality award for careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in secondary schools, colleges and work-based learning. 

We are providing the students of Co-op Academy Bebington with access to advice and guidance at key transition points in their career planning and throughout their time at school, embedding the careers curriculum across all years and in partnership with key stakeholders, such as colleges, universities, employers and enterprise advisers.


We have a network of Alumni at Bebington who want to inspire the next generation. Some of our students have gone on to do great things, and they want to use their experiences to help our students achieve their dreams too!
