Careers Education

Our Careers Lead is Mrs Helen Hill: telephone: 01494 862869

Preparation for employment is an integral part of everything we do at the Misbourne.   We aim to prepare our students to go on to further or higher education or skilled employment and enable them to make a significant contribution to society.

While qualifications remain very important, with few exceptions, they are no longer the only consideration.  We recognise that employability or work-readiness is becoming more and more important when potential employers’ look for people to fill vacancies. 

We do everything we can to ensure Misbourne students develop these skills and attributes so that they get ahead in the workplace.  We support students by:

  • holding careers seminars
  • giving students individual careers advice
  • working with business mentors
  • encourage Sixth Form students to organise work experiences relevant to their higher education and career aspirations
  • hosting  an annual careers fair
  • giving individual careers guidance
  • helping students  to write effective curriculum vitae and personal statements
  • arranging interview training and mock interviews
  • providing guidance regarding different career pathways, including information on apprenticeships

as well as ensuring that students understand how they will be able to apply the skills and knowledge they have gained in school when they go out to work.
