Year 11 students benefit from careers consultation sessions

Year 11 students benefit from careers consultation sessions

This week saw the last of the Year 11 one-to-ones with external career consultants. This follows the Morrisby career profiling assessments the students took in the summer term when they were in Year 10. This year the one-to-ones were virtual, and girls sat in the splendour of the Stephens Room and connected with a consultant through Teams. Somewhat different to usual, but good practice for what may become the norm for interviews in the future.

Mrs Bodil Chambers, Head of Higher Education & Careers, said: “Some students were surprised to be talking about careers already, but this process has encouraged them to start thinking about the options ahead, and how their A Level choices might influence higher education and careers. Perfect timing given the decisions they will be making in the next few months.”

Morrisby provides each student with a detailed report and continued access to her own personalised web resource and virtual guide to education, training and careers. As interests and circumstances change, students will be able to develop and refresh their profile, leading to relevant new suggestions, advice and information. The students also have access to a great deal of support at Woldingham, from teachers, tutors and Mrs Chambers, who is a qualified careers advisor.
