Each student through their time at Woodbrook Vale School has access to:

  • Independent and impartial career guidance
  • Help centred around their individual needs
  • Access to a qualified Career Guidance Practitioner 
  • A structured, broad, balanced CEIAG programme in Years 7-11 that is integrated into the curriculum within the school
  • Information to allow the student to make well informed choices and decisions

We provide opportunities for students to attend various events throughout the year which helps to enhance our CEIAG programme. We also provide career specific assemblies, presentations, visits and taster days for our students.

If you are an education or training provider who would like to share your opportunities with our students then please contact Mr P Hynes (phynes@wbvs.co.uk) in the first instance. We will ensure that your request is appropriate for our students and then can arrange a suitable session that may be part of a dedicated careers (Personal Development) lesson, an assembly or an existing calendared school event. There are a variety of spaces that can be used for such sessions that include classrooms, the lecture theatre, the drama studio or the dining hall.
