Careers Advisory Team

A team of experienced and professionally qualified Career Advisers who are  registered with the Career Development Institute, and accredited with the Matrix  Quality Standard for Information, Advice and Guidance.

The team's aims are:

  • To afford the school every support that is deemed necessary and desirable in the support of the students and those responsible for them
  • To deliver effectively and rigorously careers information, advice and guidance to young people; to maximise their life opportunities by promoting and enhancing participation and inclusion
  • To offer additional, intensive support to the more vulnerable young people.
