Welcome to the Careers and Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) section of our website. This is designed to direct you to the many sources of information that can help you to choose your future study and career pathways.
Careers Support Site
The Work Ready Schools website provides lots of free training and resources to help you build your skills and succeed in your future career. You can find accredited, video-based training modules on key topics such as leadership, communication and resilience. These are written by specialists and feature interactive quizzing and top tips from some of the UK’s biggest companies.
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.
Career Development Institute
There is a careers section in our school library and this is open for you to browse when the library is open.
The impact of the school’s Careers and IAG support is measured on an annual basis via the destinations data survey from the DFE and the zero returns of NEET (Not in education, employment of training) numbers.
Designated Careers lead is Mr J Connolly - email email@example.com
