Independent Careers Advice

Careers Advisers provide careers advice and guidance on all the available options to each young person. This includes all aspects of education, employment and training provision. Our careers advisor is qualified to level 6 in careers advise and guidance in line with statutory guidelines.   

In Year 11 each student will be offered a 1:1 careers guidance interview where options are introduced, explored and discussed. This enables the young person to make an informed decision about their future. This may include:

• Action plan
Creating an action plan gives focus to the young person’s needs

• Job information
Up to date and accurate job information can help inform choices

• Applications
Help with colleges and other learning providers

• CVs
Help to create a personal tailored CV

• Apprenticeships

• Visits to colleges and other learning providers
• Exploring higher education

Exploring options through UCAS and support with A Level choices

Advisers also meets with students in Year 9 to support with option choices and Year 10 to start discussing post 16 options.

During 6th Form each student will receive a 1:1 careers guidance interview with an adviser to discuss their next steps into University, Apprenticeships or Employment.

Throughout the school year Careers Advisers also support parent’s evenings, 6th Form open evenings and information events where parents and carers will also have the opportunity to discuss their child’s future.
