Independent Careers Adviser - Carol James
Carol James is an experienced and fully qualified independent Careers Adviser who works in Tapton on 2 days each week. Careers interviews are generally 40 minutes long and parents are welcome to attend if they wish.
All students in Y11 benefit from a careers interview before the post-16 application deadline at the end of January. Students in other year groups can request an interview themselves or be referred by their teachers or Year Managers and every effort will be made to see as many students as possible.
Students receive a copy of notes made during the interview to refer to later and are also emailed to request electronic feedback.
