Careers Advice & Guidance

Welcome to the Careers Advice & Guidance pages of the website. Here we aim to give you access to as much useful information as possible to help you choose your career path whether it's options choices in Year 9, ideas for what you might want to study after Year 11 or which universities offer the courses that you're most interested in. As well as the resources on these pages there is Careers Adviser in school who students can talk to for advice and guidance about careers.  

In addition to this Young People (aged 13 to 19) can talk to a National Careers Service Careers Adviser by calling 0800 100 900 or going to the National Careers Service website for more information. Parents might also want to take a look at Parent Adviser and Careers Advice for Parents, as they have lots of hints and tips on how best to support your child when they're making decisions about their future career.
