Careers Bulletin March 2017

Careers Bulletin January 2017

Please find a link above to our new Careers Bulletin which will be published monthly and made available to all students. In each edition there will be a range of information and links to up to date careers, apprenticeship and next steps opportunities. Although primarily targeted towards Sixth Form students, we would encourage Year 11 students to read through the bulletin; there will be useful opportunities, links and contacts.

We would also like to remind you of our email facility should you have any questions: careers@rws.uk.net . All students can email the Careers Department if they require advice and guidance or to organise a careers appointment.

We are also excited at the development of our new Careers Department within the Learning Commons. Over the next few weeks we will be working to develop an area for students to visit during the day to access the wide range of resources, reading materials and up to date notices. A launch date will be advertised before half term.
