Welcome to Careers

Careers is imbedded throughout the curriculum here at Blue Coat. Careers in the Lower School is covered in PSHE lessons. In Year 11 students complete a psychometric test to help with A level choices. In Year 12, students have a weekly timetabled lesson where apprenticeships, gap years and universities are discussed in detail. Annual events include a Careers fair, UCAS exhibition and a Higher Education evening.
