Our impartial careers advisor, Miss Berry, is in school every day, based in the top office. Every Year 11 pupil will have a one to one careers guidance interview; pupils in other years will have small group interviews, allowing them to start thinking about and researching possible pathways. Pupils (or parents/carers) may request an interview directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Pupils from any year group are welcome to drop in at break or lunch with any queries about colleges, apprenticeships, universities or careers in general. There are prospectuses from all the local colleges and training providers, along with a large selection of university brochures on display.
Lunchtime drop in sessions from various colleges and training providers are held on a regular basis – these will be advertised via the bulletin or by email. These are a great chance to chat about facilities, courses, transport and entry requirements.
There are a number of very good careers websites providing advice and guidance on a wide range of jobs, training courses, apprenticeships and so on. Follow the links on the school website.
