  • Identified Y12/13 students will be offered a careers interview.
  • All Y11 students will be involved in a mock interviews and feedback on CVs.
  • Selected Y13 students will have help with CV and interviews.
  • All Y10 students will take part in Work Experience.
  • Careers Fair for all students from Y9 upwards.
