Careers

We understand the importance of building the highest aspirations in our young people.  We work hard to provide them with all of the necessary information needed to make well informed decisions about the future and to break stereotypes and barriers.

Our named careers Lead for the school is Ms Philippou, Assistant Headteacher.


WSFG have bought into an incredibly valuable tool called ‘Start’ by U-Explore.  This is a one stop careers advice station.  It is your daughter’s tool to access information on colleges, universities, careers and qualifications.  Students can keep their profile up to date and get advice on their next steps. They can add activities to their ‘locker’ to build a portfolio which can support with CV writing, college and job applications.  Students’ logins will stay in place even once they have left WSFG provided we are still with ‘Start’.  Ask your daughter to show you this tool at home and encourage her to update it regularly.


Year 11 Careers Day 2020

All Year 11 students will be having a Careers Day to give students the opportunity to research various Colleges and Sixth Forms, learn more about the application process, receive information on Apprenticeships, and have time to actually complete some applications.

The Careers Days will be in ICT suites, delivered in tutor groups and will run for the entire day.

WSF will have their Careers Day on Tuesday 1st December.

GCH will have their Careers Day on Monday 30th November. 

If you have any questions please email Ms Warren. More details on ICT rooms being used and the programme for the day will be shared after half term. 

Thanks
