CAREERS GUIDANCE

The Stourport High School & VIth Form College has an experienced advisor, Linda Roberts, who meets with students both in groups and one to one, offering advice and guidance. As a school we offer impartial (independent) information, advice and guidance for 12-19 years olds with regards to education, employment and training opportunities. Career Guidance is targeted at ‘key transition’ points with learners on a one to one basis helping to raise aspirations, build confidence and enhance decision making skills concerning future options. 

Our Careers Advisor is available in school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, although is contactable by students and parents at careers@shs.worcs.sch.uk

We also work closely with the Learning Support and Pastoral Team within school to ensure that learners who may require additional guidance about their future opportunities are offered extra support.

Appointments for careers & guidance meetings, or to request information on subjects/courses/careers, can be made by visiting the careers room in ALF, via a form tutor or emailing careers@shs.worcs.sch.uk

We offer:

  • Independent one to one careers guidance meetings for sixth form students with regards to their post 18 options (university, higher and further education, apprenticeships, employment and gap years), as well as mock interviews in preparation for future career pathways.

  • Advice, information and personal support to all students about decision making and their future direction, specifically:

    • Those in Year 11 who are thinking about their post 16 options (sixth form, college, apprenticeships and employment)

    • Year 8/9’s with their options choices

    • Those in year 12/13 who are not considering university

  • A ‘drop-in’ at breaktime and lunchtime for any student to come and ask questions about any education or career area, or any help they may require in overcoming barriers to their goals.
