Career guidance

Following their time at Greenshaw, students take a variety of paths. The majority continue their education at university, some choose to enter their chosen profession whilst others opt for a gap year, either to broaden their experience of the world or to take a little more time to decide upon the direction they wish to take.

The school supports students in this decision-making process in a number of ways. For those who choose university, we make prospectuses available, organise day trips, invite representatives of universities to speak and offer personal advice about possible choices. Once choices have been made, we offer a comprehensive support programme for the completion of the UCAS process. Following the receipt of final A level results, we continue to offer support to students in finalising the places they have chosen.

For students who decide that university is not for them, we offer the same level of support and guidance. Careers interviews are arranged and support given in the application process. Where possible, we will help to organise work experience placements and do all that we can to help students place themselves in their chosen career.

We have a dedicated Future Pathways Co-ordinator, Mrs Sone, who is available to address any enquiries related to careers and guide students accordingly. She can be contacted by email at
