  • Workplace visits
  • Hands on workshops
  • Work Experience
  • Apprenticeships
  • Representation at parents evenings and careers fairs
  • Mock Interviews


What Next Fair? 
Every year, we hold a careers fair for all students from Years 7-11. This gives students an opportunity to see employment opportunities and post-16 pathways available in the local area. The What Next? Fair aims to helps to: 

  • Provide access to higher education providers and employers who can offer information and guidance to students regarding their futures.
  • Help students think about their career options in the future
  • Raise students awareness of learning opportunities available to them
  • Show students the different pathways they can take including academic and vocational routes
