Careers Support Years 7 to 11

Your careers journey starts here

The Careers Department is dedicated to helping Warwick School pupils identify their innate skills and abilities, develop these and add new skills, and work towards a career plan to help them achieve their ambitions. We supply Information, Advice, and Guidance (IAG) to enable Warwick pupils to make informed choices, whether it be the university they wish to attend, the top degree apprenticeship they want to take up, or the job they take up after school.

There are four key elements to good career planning:

  • Career ideas - what types of jobs are you best suited to based on your skills set and interest
  • Self-awareness - your strengths, skills and competencies
  • Opportunity awareness - what jobs are out there and where those jobs might be located
  • Decision-making - the ability to gather information and then make confident, informed decisions

Throughout all levels of the school, the Department offers a range of accessible activities, initiatives and projects to better equip pupils with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful at each stage of their careers journey.

Business Lunches Workshops are delivered through-out the academic year by first-class employers who are experts in their field, including law, medicine, science, business, architecture and many other professions.

Drop In Career Clinics 1.05pm – 2.00pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Warwick pupils are able to drop in to see Mr. Tapper-Gray (Head of Careers and Volunteering) at lunch times Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursday to have informal discussions covering career matters, or to arrange a more in-depth appointment.

Volunteering opportunities and work experience are available in all years of the school, with the aim of supporting first-class character education and bridging the gap between academia and the world of work.
