Kim Harris, our independent and impartial careers advisor, has been working with the Year 11 students to help them consider their options once they leave Maidenhill School. Most have now received a careers interview to check over plans, explore opportunities and to gain additional information. The careers interviews will continue into January. Kim is also available for students to drop in on Wednesday lunchtimes to ask questions, gain help with a CV, application or preparation for an apprenticeship interview. To support this work, on 13th November, we held our post 16 evening, which was attended by many local colleges, Sixth Forms, universities and training providers as well as local businesses. This is an extremely useful evening for students to gather information about their future education and careers.
Kim has also spent time with Year 9 during Learning for Life to help them become better prepared for choosing their KS4 subjects when they make their choices next term.
