Career and Apprenticeship Opportunities

Please see below, at the bottom of this page, PDF attachments of Work Experience programmes.


Prospects provide independent careers advice to identified students, typically (but not exclusively) year 11’s who may need support deciding which A Level courses to study. We also prioritise those considered to be vulnerable or at risk of becoming NEET (not in employment, education or training); those students with special educational needs or disabilities; and members of the Sixth Form who may need extra help with alternative options to university applications. A qualified Careers Adviser comes into school every two weeks, on a Thursday.
