Mrs A Qureshi
Work Related learning Coordinator

My responsibilities as a Work Related Learning Coordinator are to coordinate the provision of a quality careers education, information, advice and guidance service to students of Levenshulme high school in line with statutory guidance and school careers strategy. My role involves working with partners and developing a programme of events, information sessions, work experience and trips that support this provision. I also plan and coordinate STEM activities and opportunities for the school. I am passionate about raising the aspirations of our students.

Mrs S Acton (Wed/Thu)
Careers Advisor

Working as a Level 6 qualified careers advice and guidance practitioner, I am passionate about supporting students in making important decisions in their lives. I support Levenshulme High School pupils on their career path and also help them to overcome any barriers to learning and employment opportunities.

Mr N Johnson
Deputy Head Teacher

One of my strategic responsibilities as a Deputy Head Teacher at Levenshulme High School is to ensure that all students have up-to-date, accurate and inspirational advice and guidance regarding Further Education, Higher Education and Career pathways.  I am passionate about making sure all of our students know the choices available to them, that they have high expectations and can access the right information to make the right decisions about their futures.

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 now 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 future career options 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.
