Careers in Key Stage 3

Any questions about careers, university or generally about your future don’t hesitate to contact Mr P Stafford

In Year 7

Careers Education and Guidance is very important in early years at school.

  • You will be introduced to Kudos, an online careers resource. Kudos will give you all the information you need to make important decisions about future careers and what subjects, courses and training you can do to reach your career destination. If you are unsure of what careers you might be interested in, Kudos can give ideas based on what you like and dislike. You can also discover what careers your subjects can lead to. Kudos is packed with information on what employers are looking for, what you can earn and what qualifications you will need for a particular career.
  • You will be introduced to the Careers Library and learn careers research skills
