Careers

Students are supported throughout their time at Iveshead in accessing careers advice and information.  This is through a number of initiatives such as attending careers fairs and participating in experience days.  A full breakdown of our careers provision is available to view here.

All students in Y11, Y12 and Y13 have access to the dedicated Careers Google Classroom – here students can find information about College open days, Careers events, Apprenticeships and local job opportunities.

Events and Activities

Skills Builder

Skills Builder have set up a Home Learning Hub, so that teachers, parents and students can easily and freely access essential skills building resources from home. You can click into a range of activities aimed at different age groups, linked to eight key life and employability skills. See: https://www.skillsbuilder.org/homelearning

 

There are over 350 job roles in the NHS, a growing sector of work as trends show that we are living longer, but with more complex health conditions. Young people and adults can explore the wide range of roles, and do a fun quiz to see which roles they are best suited to on: https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/explore-roles 

Meet our alumni

In this section you will get to hear about some of our fantastic former students.  We will share their journey into the world of work or their next steps in education or training.  We are very proud of our alumni and that many give time to come back and talk to our students.

Are you a former student from our school? We’d love to hear your story and perhaps feature you on our website or invite you to call back to our school and talk about your career pathway.  There are lots of ways to do this but have a look at our Employer Area for some ideas and do get in touch!
