National Careers Week

Published 7 March 2024

 Our Students’ Future Careers Start Here! #NCW2024

It’s National Careers Week (NCW), (4-9 March), and so it’s a great time to highlight some of the careers resources and information available to St Bart’s students.

Please do visit our Careers Opportunities website page for some interesting links including:

  • A Parents’ Guide to National Careers Week, which gives parents a chance to learn more about different careers paths their children/child can take,
  • Articles on types of Apprenticeship available, the pros and cons of University and T-Levels explained,
  • A Job Profile of the ‘best job in the UK’ (according to job search site, Indeed).

At St Bart’s our career programme is supported by the careers company Adviza. Adviza are running a series of industry webinars in the coming weeks, including Diagnostic and Therapeutic Radiography, Film & TV, Construction, Early Years Childcare and Education, and Interior Design. If these webinars are of interest to you or your student, please do visit the Adviza Events page for more information.

St Bart’s are also very fortunate to have a Level 6 qualified careers Adviza Advisor at the school. If your child requires a priority appointment with Mrs Amanda Gill, the careers advisor, requests can be made via email to Mrs Seward,

Our School Library is also a great place to start exploring careers, with brochures, booklets and leaflets to browse and access to the eCLIPS site, another Adviza resource which offers information on over 1400 jobs. This week the Library are running a NCW careers quiz for Years 7-10. The aim of the quiz is to get students exploring the Careers section in the Library and the online careers support that is available to them.

One such online resource is Unifrog – the Destination Platform that we use in school. All our students have access to Unifrog and it enables them to explore careers, university and apprenticeship information, complete self-assessment tests to identify next steps or possible careers and to complete CVs, UCAS personal statements and apprenticeship applications. It also enables students to create an ongoing record of key achievements and activities, which are regularly reviewed with their tutors. Please do encourage students to log-in and demonstrate the site to you.

Finally, St Bart’s arrange a number of events throughout the year as part of our Careers Programme. This includes an Interview Skills Day for Year 11 and KS3 Careers Fair and Enrichment Talks for Sixth Form. If you work for an organisation or business who would like to inspire the next generation of employees by supporting these events, please do get in touch by contacting our Career Lead, Mrs Seward – Thank you!
