Careers advice & Guidance

"Careers” – or to use the full title Careers Education, Independent Advice & Guidance – takes place across St Mark’s in a range of ways.

Within the Sixth Form, pupils are able to book appointments with career advisors to seek out opportunities that are available. There are also workshops on making the best out of your CV and how to be your best during interviews.

The Careers Library can be found off the corridor between Maths and PE, where pupils can access up-to-date sources such as leaflets, brochures and prospectuses, as well as online.

Please see the attached document for more information.
