Sixth Form - Careers

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

Careers education and guidance contributes to preparing young people for adult life by providing them with knowledge and skills to enable them to plan and manage their journey through learning, training and into work. QE school is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education and information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) through a combination of tutorials, personal development programme, curricular studies and enrichment activities.

 

Careers support within the Sixth Form

We are well aware that decisions about future Higher Education courses and careers are of the utmost importance at this stage in your life. Bearing this in mind, we have a wide-ranging and comprehensive programme of careers advice and education. 

 

QES sixth form tutors and the Careers leader work together in providing the following opportunities to our students:

  • Individual 1:1 Careers guidance interviews to help students decide what to do after Sixth Form

  • A Careers Education Programme which will cover all Post 18 options.

  • Tutorials on how to apply for University.

  • Advice and guidance on how to write a professional UCAS Personal Statement.

  • Mock university interviews.

  • Mock employment interviews.

  • Assistance when applying for gap year.

  • Assistance when seeking voluntary work.

  • Guidance in how to write a professional CV, covering letter and job application.

  • Career talks – On a regular basis, we will have speakers from different professions coming into school to talk to students about their specific career. All students have the opportunity to attend talks that are relevant to their studies and therefore possible future careers.

  • University open days.
