Careers Support

Having clear career goals helps students to remain motivated and focused on their studies, so we work with them to plan their next career step beyond the CFE. Whether students want to go to university, into employment or onto an Apprenticeship, we work with them to achieve their career aspirations.

Progressing to university

For those students wishing to apply to university, they will be able to access individual support to help them:

  • Select which universities to apply to
  • Complete the UCAS application process, including writing a personal statement

Guidance documents are also available here.

Students are permitted to attend up to 3 university open days during school time. However, advance notice should be provided.

  • Creating a CV
  • Researching Apprenticeship opportunities
  • Understanding the expectations of employers

Guidance documents are also available here.

By prior arrangement, students will be permitted time off from school to complete relevant work experience.

Careers Fair

To further support our students with understanding the options open to them post- CFE, we also hold an annual Careers Fair. At this event, students are able to speak to representatives from universities, training providers and employers from a variety of industries including Engineering, Accountancy and Healthcare, to understand what they offer, how they can apply and the future careers accessible to them.
