Good career guidance is critical if young people are to raise their aspirations and capitalise on the opportunities available to them.

Students experience multiple interactions with employers through careers talks; fairs, events, work experience, assemblies and in lessons across the wider curriculum.  We offer impartial advice and information at key transition points to ensure that students are aware of the post-16 and post-18 options available to them.
