Introduction to careers

At St Thomas More Catholic School we aim to raise the aspirations of our young people. We want to promote better access to all career pathways and enable our students to develop the skills outlook needed to achieve career wellbeing.

Our programme of careers education underpins the Department for Education Guidance (PDF). It will provide students with opportunities to develop and apply the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to make realistic career decisions.

  • A ‘drop-in’ careers office that is staffed and able to offer comprehensive and up-to-date information on opportunities in Education, Training and Employment.
  • Access to local Labour Market Information (LMI).
  • Access to occupational information including work experience, apprenticeships and further education training providers
  • Access to UCAS (information on universities in the UK).
  • A Careers Education Programme built into the school’s curriculum.
  • A Work Placement for the duration of 1 week in Year 10.
  • A Work Placement for the duration of 1 week in Year 12.
