Careers, Information, Advice & Guidance
Angela Cottrell is the Work Related Learning Co-ordinator for Bebington High Sports College. As well as delivering impartial careers advice and guidance to students, Angela also co-ordinates the work experience for Students in Year 10 and in Year 12. All Year 11 students are offered a careers appointment, and are given invitations , which are arranged via the front office in school. Careers advice is flexible and will cater to the needs of all of our students. Angela can advise as well as help with applications, chasing up any extra information you require. Mock interviews are arranged each year for Year 11 students and sixth form students if they require further interview experience from Employers. Employability Skills Awareness Days are also available for students. There is an annual Careers Convention, where representatives are invited from Higher Education Institutions, Further Education Colleges, Training Providers, Employers and the Armed Forces.
Who Can Book?
Year 11, 12 and 13 usually book appointments but Angela also sees any other students from all Year groups, if there are any students requiring the service slightly earlier.
Where is the Careers Office?
The Careers Office is on the same corridor as the Examinations Officer, and next to the Staff Room on the first floor.
