Careers Programme

We aim to deliver impartial, accurate and up to date information and advice to help students become more self-aware, self-confident and achieve their personal aims. 

A number of presentations are given from outside agencies during Year 13 and 14 including UCAS Higher Education Convention, University Department Open Days, and Careers Talk within our local hospital, Sentinus, SRC, CAO, DKIT.

The Careers Department work closely with the DEL Careers Advisor: who can be pre-booked for an individual appointment.  They offer a more detailed guidance interview about individual careers plans.
