Careers Advice at St Leonards
In today’s competitive world, pupils need as much support as possible with choosing and moving onto their future careers. At St Leonards we aim to ensure that our pupils make informed decisions about their futures based upon a realisation of their talents, skills and interests.
Looking to the future
We believe that the IB Diploma gives our leavers a crucial advantage in the higher education and workplace markets. However, we recognise that our pupils need guidance and advice when it comes to making decisions that will have important impacts on their futures.
In Pre-IB (Year 11), to help them make subject choices for the IB Diploma which they will begin the following year, pupils receive timetabled careers guidance as part of their Life Skills and Citizenship studies. In the Sixth Form (IB1 and IB2), pupils are encouraged to visit university open days, higher education events and careers conventions. In addition, talks by representatives from UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) and individual universities are regularly arranged for the pupils.
The Head of Careers is available to meet pupils in any year group for advice at any time - by appointment - in the Careers office. The office is open to all students and has a wealth of information on courses and careers. A drop in surgery also takes place in the office at the end of each school day.
