Careers Advisers Alastair Fraser provides career advice and guidance on all the available options to each young person. This includes all aspects of education, employment and training provision.
During 6th Form each student will receive a 1:1 careers guidance interview with Alastair to discuss their next steps into University, Apprenticeships or Employment.
As part of the schools careers programme, students have the opportunity to complete the ‘Buzz’ personality quiz. ‘The Buzz’ is a dynamic, interactive session which enables young people to identify and explore their personality types. Based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, this psychometric questionnaire can help young people to recognise and use the positive aspects of their personalities. The Buzz will also make young people aware of their natural inclinations and the skills they may need to adapt to be more successful in the workplace. Buzz can also be used on a one-to-one basis to help young people explore suitable job areas. Each young person will be given a detailed analysis of their particular personality type which will show how this can positively influence their career choices.
Throughout the school year Careers Adviser Alastair also supports parent’s evenings, 6th Form open evenings and information events where parents and carers will also have the opportunity to discuss their child’s future.
