The designated careers lead for Levenshulme High School is: Mrs A. Qureshi.
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 careers advisor, Suzanne Acton, is available in school on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Mrs Qureshi is available for consultation on the first floor of the Crossley building. There is also a drop-in session during morning break and lunch if students have any quick questions on careers or education.
Young people are now expected to stay in education or training up until the age of 18.
We are delighted to have been accredited with the Inspiring IAG (Information and Guidance) Gold award, which recognises good quality careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG).
