Mr Kennington, the school’s careers advisor, is in every Wednesday to discuss future career ideas and options after Year 11. Everyone in Year 11 will have a careers appointment with him at some point during the year.
If you’d like to see him urgently, let your tutor know.
How will I know if I’ve got an appointment?
You’ll get an appointment slip from the student helpers on the day or your Form Tutor or Mr Kennington will inform you of the interview.
Show your class teacher the slip and please turn up to your appointment on time.
How can I prepare for it?
It’s a good idea to start thinking about questions you might want to ask him.
Mr Kennington will also run group workshops throughout the year which you will be selected for by your tutors.
