Careers Education

Careers and Work Related Learning

Students at Gordon’s School can expect a wide variety of activities to enhance their Careers and Work Related Education.  There are fortnightly Careers talks from different industries, appointments with our Careers Adviser; Mark, CV workshops, Careers Fairs and many other activities.  Careers education starts in Year 7, and continues until students leave us in Year 13. Year 10 and Year 12 also have the opportunity to complete Work Experience in the last week of the Summer Term.  We are always looking for innovative ways to improve our careers programme, so if you feel you are able to help, please get in touch.
