Independent Advice and Guidance
All pupils can request to speak to a careers advisor. We employ Kim Dickson, an independent careers advisor one day per week via Career Connect. Kim is able to offer you impartial advice on a range of career pathways and providers. She can offer advice and guidance as well as support for sixth form, university or college applications.
All pupils across the academy have access to up to date advice via the Morrisby programme. Pupils can log in and explore a vast range of careers, all with up to date labour market information. Pupils can tailor what they see to their current subject and aspirations, and are able to alter these preferences at any time. Please click here to access Morrisby https://newapp.morrisby.com/login
You also have the option to send questions to a fully qualified Careers Advisor via Morrisby, who will aim to reply as soon as possible. This is completely confidential, and you can use this service as often as you need to, including during school holidays.
