"Life in all its fullness"

Welcome To The Careers Department

The Careers Department is situated on the first floor in Bede House and is open Monday to
Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm (term time only).

Our team of 3 professionally qualified Careers Advisers work with students to provide comprehensive bespoke careers information, advice, and guidance. We aim to raise aspirations and awareness of the range of options and opportunities available to them to enable them to become effective decision makers and to plan for their future careers.

All students will follow career education programmes at key transition points, and they can access careers support through individual careers appointments, tailored to meet their individual needs.
