All students take part in a full programme of Careers Education. We aim to broaden their interests and aspirations, and ensure that students can make well informed choices about their future. All Year Ten students undertake Work Experience in the summer term. The world of work is also experienced through contact with local employers, Business Mentors, industry visits and Enterprise Days.
Pool Academy has enjoyed a long and productive partnership with the Cornwall College, Camborne, which is adjacent to the school site. The specialist sixth-form centre is a popular destination for AS and A-level students, offering over forty subjects at AS and A level, whilst within the whole college our students have access to an extensive range of courses. Examples from the hundreds of courses on offer include construction and engineering, plumbing, interior design, automotive engineering, arts and media, catering, languages, forensic science and criminology and business.
