Year 11 Careers : Post-16 Options
All of our Year 11 should have completed a Moving Forwards form which allows us to organise their Careers Interviews. Information on this can be found in the Year 10 section on THIS page.
Our school library has a Careers section with books such as The Good University Guide, the Guide to Not Going to University, HEAP 2020 and many prospectuses. Pupils need to be able to write a Personal Statement and navigate through application sites such as Kent Choices.
For Kent Choices, the website pupils should use is as follows: https://www.kentprospectus.co.uk/login/
If you need help with anything to do with Kent Choices, then email firstname.lastname@example.org
