Careers Advice

The careers education and guidance programme at Outwood Academy Bishopsgarth seeks to positively support students to acquire the educational, social and employability skills necessary for lifelong success in a diverse and changing world of work.

We are currently working with an external provider:

Students at Outwood Academy Bishopsgarth are entitled to a careers education and guidance programme which:

  • helps students to gain the skills they need to make their career ambitions a reality

    activities and events such as careers fairs
  • access to career advisers in a variety of ways including individual meetings, drop-in sessions, learning pathway planning and results days

Post-16 Provider Events

We aim to regularly update our list of all the upcoming Post-16 provider open evenings and events, so that students and parents/carers alike can make decisions about courses being taken at Outwood Academy Bishopsgarth, and beyond. If you are a college provider and we have missed a date, please email Mrs Jill Appleby who leads our Careers and Post-16 provision, or Mr Hannah year 11 learning manager.

Career Information ‘Drop-In’ Sessions – Tuesdays 2.30 – 3.30pm

Students can ask questions and get support with CVs, help with application form completion for college, collect prospectuses for colleges and apprenticeship providers and research courses for after GCSEs. We also aim to run ‘Careers Information Sessions’ occasionally in these sessions, often in partnership with Post-16 providers and increasingly with employer partners and alumni in particular career sectors. Sessions are focused on career choices around particular subjects that students may be interested in pursuing after post-16 and post-18 education. For more details speak to Mrs Appleby or Mr Hannah.

Monthly Post-16 Lunchtime Drop-In Sessions – Wednesdays

Each month, we are grateful for our partner Post-16 Colleges and Apprenticeship providers, who man stands during one lunchtime on a Wednesday, to promote choices beyond GCSE, answer questions and inspire our student for their next steps. For parents, the timetable is below, if you want your son/daughter to pick up particular information
