Careers – Year 9

Contacting the Careers Department whilst school is closed during lockdown

The Careers Department remains open to offer careers information, advice and guidance to our students and their parents and carers via Teams, phone or email. Please contact us via and a Careers Adviser will reply to your enquiry as soon as possible

During Year 9 students will receive advice and guidance from the Careers Department to help them make informed decisions when choosing Key Stage 4 options. Students will spend time exploring the courses available to them in Key Stage 4 and beyond.

Students will once again engage in activities to review their skills, qualities and the careers decision-making process. They will be introduced to Kudos, a computer programme which they can access to research career and study opportunities. From these activities we aim to give them the opportunity to adjust their individual careers plans to be more reflective of their in-school and out of school experiences, activities and interests.

Students will also further examine the changes that have taken place in the workplace over a period of time and apply their knowledge to reflect on their planning for their preferred future.

Students are welcome to visit the Careers department during break time and lunchtime, when the careers staff will be on hand to offer guidance and answer any queries about careers and Key Stage 4 option choices.
