‘Good career guidance is the key to social mobility: It is about showing young people – whatever their social and family background – the options open to them, and helping them make the right choices to set them on the path to rewarding future careers.’ (Good Career Guidance – Reaching the Gatsby Benchmarks)
Welcome to our careers service which we intend will help all students to make informed decisions about their next steps in education, training, work placement with training and apprenticeship. You will find access to useful websites using the link below, which will provide information and contacts with relevant providers on the pages ahead.
During the course of the year we will be aiming to expand the site to ensure that all relevant information is included and available for you. Please feel free to request that specific information be made available on this site and we will endeavor to make it possible. In the first instance please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to ensure that our young people receive the right careers guidance, we purchase expert, independent and impartial careers education and guidance from Entrust Education. Our Entrust adviser is Level 6 accredited by the Matrix Standard for impartial careers information, advice and guidance.
