Careers, University Guidance & Work Experience

Careers advice is given to students in four ways:

1. Through an ongoing programme of careers’ guidance which is delivered mainly during Form Periods and the dedicated Higher Education / Enrichment ‘slot’ on Wednesday afternoons. Students are advised on general careers issues and are introduced to the UCAS system in Year 12.

All students receive help and guidance with their Personal Statement and are taken through the UCAS Application process early in Year 13. As part of the programme, the whole of Year 12 also attend the HE Convention at G-Mex in the Spring term.

2. Through individual consultations with students which take place on a regular basis both with their form tutor and the Head of Sixth Form

3. Through a series of talks by visiting speakers, including representatives from Higher Education, Apprenticeship Schemes and key professions.

4. Through individual interviews with professional external careers advisers

We believe our difference is, the way we treat all our students differently, as the true individuals they are.
