Careers Advisor (Main School & Sixth Form)
Hosting one-to-one careers meetings with every year 11, 12 and 13 is the main part of my role at Whalley Range. Guiding students to describe their skills and passions happens alongside us exploring an exciting amount of possibilities at colleges, university, in the world of work and volunteering. Realistic advice is given using mock exam results for Post-16 choices. Every student's careers meeting notes are saved on Unifrog. I am available to answer any careers questions for the whole school population online and at parents’ evenings.
