Student Help and Support
Students are encouraged from Yr 7 onwards to discuss and reflect on their own career aspirations with their parents, peers, tutors, teachers, pastoral support teams and visiting employers/employees.
Students who need one-to-one advice can book an appointment with our independent careers consultant Mrs Jayne Roworth (JRoworth@sandbachschool.org) in order to review their options in more detail.
By the end of Year 11, all students will have been allocated a one-to-one meeting with a member of the school’s Leadership Team to discuss their progress in relation to future plans.
Alternatively, appointments can be made with Steve Mills our Careers and Enterprise Education Manger (firstname.lastname@example.org) who has a wide range of experience related to careers, further education and training.
For particular advice and guidance related to specific careers or ‘pathways’ then the following websites are most useful in firming up and reflecting on the opportunities and choices available.
