Careers Information – Year 11

Students are encouraged to complete a Progress File to take with them on their careers journey. This will include updating their CV and making a collection of their personal achievements to take forward for interviews.

In July all students are able to attend the 3 Colleges Taster day, where students can have a taste of courses they are considering taking in the future. We encourage all students to take the opportunity to visit all relevant open events at colleges to find out if the courses they are considering are right for them

We hold a dedicated Year 11 Information Evening in October with a chance to meet the all local colleges and training providers in the area.

Communication skills are vital for success in the job market so we hold a ‘Careers Speed Networking Event’ where employers from across the county and beyond, from all walks of life are invited to come and share their career stories and journeys. 35 different employe1rs came in 2017 covering many employment sectors including law, engineering, technology, medicine and healthcare, finance and creative to name but a few.

Each student will be offered at least one dedicated careers interview to help him or her choose the most suitable pathway appropriate for them  as they move forward from Weobley.

Also on offer, dedicated workshops to help with college and apprenticeship applications.
