Designated careers advisor
We also have our own dedicated careers advisor: Ms Lawrence
Melanie Lawrence (Post grad dip QCG) is the Careers Adviser for William Brookes and is available in school one day per week, (usually Mondays). Appointments are available during lesson times and there is also a ‘drop-in’ facility at break time and lunch time. The Careers room is the interview room on the second floor, opposite the lift.
If you would like an appointment, please ask your tutor or speak to Mrs Lovelace and they will pass a message to Mel Lawrence.
Alternatively, please see Mel in the Careers room to arrange an appointment or email M.firstname.lastname@example.org. You can follow Melanie on twitter at @melcareers for up to date local and national careers information.
The impact of the school’s Careers and IAG support is measured on an annual basis via two methods:
- The destinations data survey from the DFE and the zero returns of NEET (Not in education, employment of training) numbers
- An annual survey of year 11 students that asks their views and feedback that can then shape future actions
The information on this page is reviews annually, every July.
