Careers Education Information, Advice and Guidance
Levenshulme High School works hard to ensure that all our students have the opportunity to make informed decisions about their future.
Levenshulme High School has achieved the national Quality in Careers Standard for its careers education, information, advice and guidance provision. This is awarded by Inspiring IAG which is a Licensed Awarding Body for the national standard.
Students are supported and guided with applying for Colleges/Sixth Forms by their Tutors, Career Advisors and Work Related Learning Coordinator. Over the course of the year the students will be making some big decisions about their future.
We are orow using ‘OUR FUTURES’ for careers advice within our school. During the year the students will take part in a one to one career guidance interview in school with their Career Advisor Suzanne Acton. Our WRL Coordinator is Mrs Qureshi
A Careers fair is held as part of our extensive CEIAG programme where students are able to talk to local colleges, training and apprenticeship providers so they can consider clearly their future options. The programme includes school visits, career talks with colleges, apprenticeship and training providers, employers and professionals, exhibitions, workshops and inspirational speakers.
Our career advisor Suzanne Acton is available on Wednesdays and Thursdays in school. Mrs Qureshi is available for consultation on 1st floor Crossley. There is also a drop in during morning break and lunch if the students have any quick questions about careers or education. To help you to prepare for your interview the following websites are useful: National Careers Service and PLOTR
Young people are now expected to stay in education or training up until the age of 18. Please open the following link for some useful information and guidance regarding the training and educational choices available post 16.
