Careers – Student Advice

Student information. 

Use the links in “Careers – General” and then explore further with these additional links. There is a lot to consider. Research will help you make an informed decision about your career.


We have prospectuses in the careers corner of the library, but here is a list of all local education and training providers (College, Sixth Form and Apprenticeships). Applications can be done on-line but if you need additional help, speak to school or contact the provider directly and they will happily provide individual support.
