By working in partnership with external agencies, we provide accurate and focused information, advice and guidance to enable young people to make informed choices about their future career routes. Every student is recognised as an individual and we aim to support each student’s differing needs and personal attributes as they prepare for their future career. All students are exposed to an array of different opportunities in order to develop an awareness of their individual strengths, weaknesses, skills and aptitudes and how these link to possible careers, future education and training. Every student is listened to, encouraged and supported along their journey regardless of their future aspirations.
Independent and impartial careers advice is available for all students. To book a 1:1 careers interview please contact Mr D Baker and this can be arranged. Mr Baker can also be contacted for any further careers advice or queries, ranging from discussing what options students may choose, to support with applying for post 16 options and everything in between. Throughout the academic year we will also be running specific careers workshops and drop-in sessions, using both internal and external expertise. For example:
- UCAS/Personal statement writing
- Apprenticeship guidance
- CV writing
- Application form support
- Interview techniques
The careers office is situated on Upper Site, Grainger House, where the careers team is located Wednesdays-Fridays. In the careers office there is an array of information and prospectuses for students to take a look at.
