Careers Education is seen as an integral part of the aim in developing pupils’ qualities of initiative and self-reliance. Careers Wales works with the school to arrange careers visits, talks, films, career conventions etc.  Helen Pugh our Careers Adviser also attends consultation evenings.

Every year, the school in collaboration with Careers Wales arranges for companies and trades to attend a careers conference to talk to pupils.  The close working relationship results in the expertise of the Careers Advisor to conduct interviews with pupils in year 10 and 11.  

Work-related education (WRE) is now a statutory requirement for KS4 pupils.  The school works in partnership with Careers Wales to ensure that the requirements are not only met but provide pupils with sound, practical and sensible advice and experiences to prepare them for their future working lives in the world of work.
