Careers Guidance Interviews

Career Guidance Interviews Logo.png

Every student will have opportunities for guidance interviews with a career's adviser. These will be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They will be expected for all students and timed to meet their individual needs. All students will have had one interview with a professional and impartial careers adviser by the end of year 11 and or at least two interviews with a professional career's adviser by the end of year 13. Students will receive an action plan with SMART goals that they can reflect on and advisors can upload this on to UNIFROG for the student to access.

Students will be given an appointment with Mrs Begum to discuss post-16 options, college, 6th form, universities, apprenticeship, employment opportunities and/or decisions about further and higher education.

Our Careers Leader will never tell a learner what they should do for a career; they will simply point them in the right direction in order to help them to make informed choices. Learners are encouraged to take responsibility for their own future by carrying out individual research and keeping abreast of changes in courses and entry requirements. This is an important skill that our learners continue to use after they leave school. Careers Education and Guidance is about preparing learners for what comes next and encouraging them to take their place in the modern world.
