Impartial* Career Guidance is an essential part of the educational process by which young people, from the earliest years, develop the abilities to make well informed and realistic career decisions, from what GCSE subjects to choose to what to do after GCSEs or Sixth Form, how to get a job or apprenticeship, and many other topics.
*meaning we do not recommend any institution over others, but make pupils aware of all options and institutions and allow them to form their own preferences, based on factors such as travel, experience on a visit, course availability etc.
During the summer term of Y10 and in Y11, pupils all have at least one guidance interview with our careers coordinator, Ms Dionne Paxton.
Pupils in any year group can request a career guidance interview via their Progress Managers, Learning Tutors, Mrs H Scott, seeing Ms Paxton in school or by email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Parents/carers are also welcome to request or attend a careers interview for their son or daughter by using the same email address or ringing school.
In addition to this, our Careers Advisor is available at parent’s evenings from year 10 and at the year 9 options open evening, as well as being on hand to provide support at GCSE results day.
