Careers Opportunities

National Careers Week was held from 6 – 11 March 2023 and is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK.


We update this page regularly with new opportunities that might be of interest to students and parents/carers.

Here is a link to some fact sheets with Labour Market Information which you may find useful.

The information posted on this page are aimed at students and parents/carers in Years 7 – 11. There may be some that are also open to Sixth Form students but a more comprehensive listing for older students is also available on the Sixth Form Hub: Careers and Study Opportunities page.


Did you know that the Government offer a ‘find an apprenticeship’ service? Use their website to search and apply for Level 3 options within 15 miles of Newbury or a wider area.
