Careers Advice

Careers Advice

Independent careers advisors are available almost every day at KSA, to guide students through their next steps and provide advice on further/higher education and training.

Avril Bartley-Smith and Nicola Stanbridge, of TimelyAdvice, are happy to talk to all students but focus their efforts on those in years 11 to 13. All year 11s will have an appointment before the end of the year and further sessions if required. Avril and Nicola are also happy to see students on a drop-in basis. They provide one-to-one support, assistance with application forms and careers guidance to encourage students to consider all the options available to them and what steps they need to take.

KSA has also acquired two software programmes to help students further explore their career options.

Useful websites: - Advice on careers, jobs and training opportunities in your local area, plus information on colleges and universities.  – Library of free careers videos.
