Careers Advice to the Students
Any student from any year group at any time can come and see me for a careers interview. There is an open door policy in the Careers Department with no restrictions on the number of appointments pupils can have.
Careers advice will be provided at key decision and transition points. For Year 9 with Options, Year 11 with Post 16 choices and Year 12 and 13 with progression onto higher education, employment or a gap year.
Support to Parents
I am available for appointments on the designated Parents’ Consultation Evenings but I am also very happy to see parents if they wish to discuss any careers related matter for their son or daughter. Please call me at school to arrange this.
I would also like to encourage parents to get in touch if you have a Careers related question or query. Please contact me via email :firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond as soon as possible.
We would welcome employers into our School to support and help deliver our Careers Education Programme. Students really do benefit from input from Employers and this does have a very positive impact on raising their aspirations and motivation.
If you would like to help, especially with any sessions on preparing Students for work experience, and/or employment, please get in touch with me.
We welcome any employers who contact the School who are able to offer work experience placements for our Year 10 Students. If you are able to offer a placement please get in touch.
