Careers Education and Guidance at Alderley Edge School for Girls is an integral element within our support network. All students access a careers education programme throughout their education in the senior school. We aim to ensure our students have the knowledge, resources and skills required to make informed and smooth transitions between key stages.
Students have face to face careers appointments with our in-house Careers Adviser at the key transition points in Years 9, 11 and VI form. These appointments are in addition to careers meetings that are available to all students in the senior school.
Alderley Edge School for Girls hosts a biennial Careers Convention welcoming over 70 delegates to meet with students. These events are an informative and potentially life-changing experience for the students, giving them an opportunity to gain information on different routes into wide range of careers. After the event, many of our students gain valuable work experience placements.
Following the great success of our 2022 Careers Convention we are in the process of organising out next event for 2024. This is in addition to our series of virtual and in person careers talks with employers and individuals from an array of industries, taking place throughout the year. The greater use of technology has enabled us to video conference professional contributors from all over the world.
If you are interested in supporting these events please get in touch.
