Year 8 Careers

In year 8 students will be researching and learning about a variety of careers and should also begin some independent research. They will be shown how to start using the National Careers Service website and given an opportunity to create a careers folder in their own intranet area.

We encourage students to explore the career prospects of STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) because these are careers fields that are expanding very fast, and need more young people to take up these exciting opportunities.

In Year 9 there will be an opportunity to make an appointment with the careers advisor during parents evening and at option evening.
