Career Guidance

Amanda Victor, Careers Adviser

All year 11 students have the opportunity of a career's guidance interview with A Level 6 qualified, experienced careers adviser working for Adviza, an independent careers advice and guidance company. During this meeting, students explore the variety of options available to them beyond year 11 to enable them to make well informed decisions about their future study and careers. 6th formers can also be seen by self-referral or tutor referral. The careers adviser works alongside Mrs Hawkins as part of the school’s careers team on areas of careers education, advice and guidance.
