We are still continuing to follow the government guidelines closely with everything going on but we hope to be able to deliver these days for students in June/July as they are really beneficial. We are also working on a contingency plan on how we could potentially run them virtually if by the Summer the government are still advising further lockdown restrictions.

Exploring Career Ideas

It is never too early to start thinking about what you might like to do and there are lots of great websites that offer you the opportunity to explore any ideas you may have. 

It is quite normal for ideas to change over time but the more ideas you have, explore and consider, the better informed you will be - helping you to make good decisions about which pathway to follow. 

Useful Advice & Links

We have done the research so you don't have to - below are some VERY useful documents all designed to help you get where you need to go

Produced after National Careers Week, our 12 page "A Guide For Parents: Steering your Teenager toward a Job and Career" is available free for parents and schools/colleges. It helps parents to get their teenagers engaged with careers information and services available to them and with building employability, application and interview skills.
