Careers Education & Guidance
To support with careers education whilst the school is closed we have added resources to the school network to complete at home.
The resources can be found in the following location:
There is a folder for each year group which contains an activity booklet to help students understand careers and plan for the future. The booklets are in pdf format but can be edited to allow responses to be typed directly into the document.
We encourage students to work through each of the activities in the booklet using the suggested websites and resources to support them with this. There are answers at the end of the booklet to allow students to assess their responses.
Should any students require further help or guidance please email Mr Burdett, Assistant Headteacher firstname.lastname@example.org
For any Y11 students that are still unsure about the options available to them post-16 please email Carmel Haughey, School Careers Adviser email@example.com
