“Pupils receive helpful advice about the different opportunities available to them at the end of key stage 4” (Ofsted 2019)

At William Edwards School, we understand the importance of Careers Education, Information and Guidance and pride ourselves on the quality of our provision offered to our students. For a summary of the provision by year group please click WES Careers Education.

We have a Careers Education Programme on offer to our students, which is delivered through a range of activities, events and agencies; with support from local businesses and a programme of visits to and by local colleges and universities, through which, we aim to raise the aspirations of all our students and help them to reach their career ambitions.

Mrs Debbie Doyle gives free Information, Advice and Guidance to all William Edwards students. If you would like to book and interview then students can see her in the 14 – 19 Careers Department.
