Welcome to our online Careers Library

Here you will find links to lots of web sites and documents that will help you to plan for your future. They will support you in what you do in your careers lessons. Don't forget you can access careers software at school and at home, and get advice from your tutor, your careers teacher or ask for a referral to our Futures Careers Advisor.

Follow the menu links above to pages relevant to your year group.  The links below are relevant to students in every year.

 

You can talk to a qualified Careers Advisor from 8 in the morning 'til 10 at night.  There are lots of ways to contact them - choose the one that's best for you: phone and callback, text, web chat, email or minicom.  All calls are confidential.  This is part of the National Careers Service but is a bit hidden on their site so this will take you straight to it.
This site has replaced the Connexions Direct site and has some of the content.  There are sections for Careers Tools (Action Planning, Skills Health Check, CV Builder, Learning Record and finding information) and Careers Advice (Plan Your Career, Get a Job, Courses and Learning and Job Profiles).  You can still get one-to-one advice from a Careers Advisor via phone, text and web-chat 14 hours a day.
