What is Careers Education about?

Careers education prepares you for the world after school. This includes thinking about how you look after yourself as an adult, how you relate to other people and how you fit into society. We provide information, guidance and help with making decisions about the future to all students from Y9 upwards. This includes:

  • Options for study up to age 16. (GCSEs, Vocational Courses etc.)
  • Post-16 options including sixth form, college, apprenticeships, training and university study, and entry to a range of jobs and careers.
