Getting the right advice and guidance is an important part of Key Stage 4 - whether it is selecting your GCSE options or finding the right pathway at the end of Year 11. We have a comprehensive programme in place to ensure every student can explore their options and find the route to their future educational or career opportunities.
Greenford High School works closely with Ealing Connexions and provides students with access to an impartial Level 6 Careers Coordinator, Clare Rodway. Clare meets every student in Year 11 to review options for Post-16 and explore everything from A Levels to local colleges and apprenticeships. Students are supported in applying for the next stage in their education or training and where relevant helped with arranging visits and interviews. Students are free to book follow-up appointments if their plans change and the goal is for every student to have a place in education or training for the following year by the end of Year 11.
There are a wide variety of websites and services that can provide guidance on future careers.
