The Careers Department is still accessible online and students, parents and carers can contact Career Advisers as and when they require careers information, advice and guidance. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavour to reply to your inquiry as soon as possible.
Year 8 is a good time to start to considering possible future plans and research different occupations to discover what qualities, skills and qualifications are needed for these. During Careers activities you will have the opportunity to explore how your ambitions, likes and dislikes may influence the type of career that may suit you and both who, and what may influence your decisions. You will also start to consider the different ways in which the term “work” can be defined and be introduced to how the future of work may be changing.
