Careers Education and Guidance
Lewis Clifford is our Independent & Impartial Careers Advice & Guidance Officer.
The Careers Office is located on the ground floor in the Sixth Form area. Students in any year group can arrange an appointment via their Form Tutor or drop into the Careers Office to see Lewis Clifford 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.
Joanna Brown is the Sixth Form and Careers Administrator and can be contacted to arrange careers appointments and to find out about the arrangements foe careers events.
A drop-in service is held regularly and will be advertised via the school newsletter and on SharePoint.
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 Lewis Clifford or Joanna Brown in the Careers Office
Employer and Higher Education Engagement
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. finance advice to our Sixth Form learners.
