Careers Advice and Guidance

Students from any year group who would like to discuss their career plans can book an appointment with a careers adviser by calling into the careers centre. Staff may also refer students if they think that they would benefit from an individual guidance interview.

All year 11 students are invited to an individual careers appointment to help them to make a successful transition to post 16 learning and they are provided with a written summary of their guidance.

Students from all year groups are welcome to use the resources and facilities and can visit the careers centre during Monday – Thursday 1-1.30pm ‘drop in’ sessions
Parents are welcome to attend careers appointments by prior arrangement, or can contact the Careers department by telephone or e-mail
Free independent advice is also available from the National Careers Service helpline available daily from 8am to 10pm 0800 100 900 .
