Careers Advice and Guidance

Your Future

During your time at St Gregory's you will be developing your knowledge, skills and interests and ultimately, this will give you the grounding for your future direction in life.  It is important that you explore the wide variety of options that are available to you Post 16 and beyond and we encourage you to make the most of any careers advice offered throughout your time at St Gregory's.

Our Careers Co-ordinator within school is Ms Z. Barnes.  However, St Gregory's also employs the services of two Careers Advisers from the company Adviza.  Our Careers Advisers are based in the Careers Office in the Sixth Form block and they are in school at various times throughout the week. 

Every Year 11 student is offered an individual interview with a Careers Adviser and you will receive independent guidance to fully inform you about the next steps you can take in your education, training or employment.  However, any student from any year is able to visit a Careers Adviser if they wish.  It is advised to make an appointment via Ms Z. Barnes, or indeed, by emailing:

TerryBianchini@adviza.org.uk.

The Adviza website has useful information for students, parents and carers alike.  For more information about the services Adviza provide, please click here.
