So far this academic year, our careers club has been a great success with great feedback from staff, parents and students.
On Mondays we run a careers club in the Lecture Theatre from 2:30pm-3:30pm We invite special guests in regularly to speak about the different job roles available, giving information on what skills/ qualities needed and how to apply.
So far we have had talks about:
The Explorers Programme
Medical Sciences/ Dentistry
Engineering - Advanced and Higher Apprenticeships
We recently ran a survey for students from years 7-11 to provide us with information about their career ideas and their knowledge and understanding of the different pathways at 18. Please see below for the results of the survey:
