Students in Y12 follow a 3 month Careers Guidance programme culminating with a mock interview with a local employer.

We subscribe to the online EClips careers resource to ensure students have access to current careers information, and speakers are invited in to talk to students about universities, apprenticeships and voluntary work on a regular basis.

If a student wishes they can request an individual Careers Interview with a Careers expert. Below are some useful websites that we encourage students to explore:
