WELCOME TO CAREERS

The Careers Education Programme is designed to support students at key transition points throughout their time at school and is built upon the National Careers Framework.

The Green Apples Programme is a 3 year programme that begins in Year 9 and involves a group of students with the potential to go on to Higher Education and would particularly benefit from additional support in this area. The programme involves visits to both York University and York St. John University.
All students have access to a fully qualified Careers Adviser who is also available to speak with parents at both Year 9 Subject Choices Evening and Year 11 Parents’ Evening.
We also have a programme of support specifically designed to help students through the application process for Oxbridge, Medicine, Dentistry, Law and Veterinary Medicine. This includes talks by both Cambridge and Oxford admissions tutors as well as a visit to Hull & York Medical School.
