The Buzz Quiz

Exploring likes and dislikes can be a good way to inspire careers. The Education and Employers charity has developed 'The Buzz Quiz' to help students do this in a fun way!

Unifrog

You also have access to an excellent online platform called Unifrog which allows you to explore ideas and save them into your 'locker' so you can keep a record of what you have done. Please contact Mrs Morris if you have any problems with passwords or usernames. 

Careers Newsletter

Every half term we produce a newsletter to allow you to look at a range of relevant issues. This term is looking at ''Career Stereotypes' and gets students to consider whether they have preset ideas about who is suitable for different roles based on who they are as a person.
