During Year 10 and 11 all students receive a 1-2-1 careers interview from our Careers Advisor who is employed by the school through FR Careers, to impartially advise and guide students as they apply for their post-16 destinations.
Each student receives a 50-minute interview, where they will receive advice about suitable courses and possible post-16 destinations. The main focus of the interview is to ensure students have a post-16 destinations in place once they have completed their GCSEs. Our Careers Advisor will look to identify personal qualities and skills, come up with ideas for study and work, explore interests, likes and dislikes and identify barriers to assess future career and education goals.
After the interview students will be given an action plan which will detail the discussion, highlighting their options, next steps and how to carry out further research. Guidance is also given during assemblies and at lunch time drop-in sessions where students are informed about the variety of different post-16 pathways and how to apply for their chosen destination.
