Careers and University Guidance

Careers advice and Higher Education careers advice is given to students in four ways:

1. Through an ongoing programme of careers guidance and weekly dedicated Higher Education / Enrichment sessions. Students are introduced to the UCAS system in Year 12 and receive intensive support with their Personal Statement and UCAS Application process early in Year 13. As part of the programme, the whole of Year 12 also attend the HE Convention at G-Mex in the Spring term.

2. Through individual consultations with students which take place on a regular basis both with their form tutor and the Head of Sixth Form

3. Through a series of talks by visiting speakers, including representatives from Higher Education, Apprenticeship Schemes and key professions.

4. Through individual interviews with professional external careers advisers.
