Careers Information, Advice & Guidance

 

In the current economic climate it is important that your child is given the best possible chance to find information on all the education and training post-16. Here at St Ambrose College we have a dedicated Careers Adviser, Ms Loughnan, to give our students Careers Guidance from Years 8-13 through one to one interviews and drop-in sessions. Miss Loughnan is in school on Mondays and Tuesdays and is based in the interview room next to reception.

We have a careers section in the school library with a range of careers information and college/university prospectuses which our students can access during school library time.

St Ambrose College has invested in two high quality licenced careers software to help students and parents/careers access up to date and reliable careers information and advice.
