Careers Information and Guidance for Pupils
It is the policy of this College that all pupils should be given the opportunity to:
Know and understand themselves better and develop their capabilities
Investigate education, training and career opportunities
Implement their career plans by making informed choices, in a supportive atmosphere, about their own continuing education and training.

In Year 7-13 all pupils are expected to use Morrisby Online (www.morrisby.com) to carry out psychometric testing, option testing and LMI research. In addition pupils should use the Log in facility to record skills and qualities, progress and targets, activities undertaken and volunteering and work experience.
The main two websites that are very useful to our pupils are:
Morrisby Online www.morrisby.com
Success at Schools. www.successatschool.org
