Careers Education and Guidance
Michelle White is our Independent & Impartial Careers Advice & Guidance Officer. She is in school four days per week.
The Careers Office is located on the first floor of the Tower Block in T17. Students in any year group can arrange an appointment via their Form Tutor or drop into the Careers Office to see Michelle White or browse the careers materials. We have a wide range of careers resources available on Moodle – which all students can access either from home or whilst in school.
A drop-in service is held regularly and will be advertised via the school newsletter and on SharePoint.
Mrs White can also be contacted through email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hold an annual Careers Fair. This is now well embedded in the life of the school. It is a chance for students to find out further information about local and national opportunities and access information that may help them to make positive career choices. For more information please see Michelle White in the Careers Office.
Employer and Higher Education Engagement – Raising Aspirations
We work with a number of local universities and higher education providers, apprenticeship providers and local, national and international employers to encourage our young people to have high aspirations for their future. We take groups of students to visit universities where they take part in various workshops, and are fortunate to have the support of higher education providers for activities in school such as our Careers and Employability days. We also work with a wide range of employers to offer talks, mentoring and tailored subject specific support to inspire our learners, give a greater understanding about the world of work and to develop employability skills.
We offer extremely good UCAS, university, apprenticeship and H.E. fees advice to our Sixth Form learners.
