Greenshaw High School

Career guidance

Post-18 Planning, our sixth form careers programme is introduced during Year 12 tutorial sessions and continues throughout sixth form. The programme supports students with their decision-making in a number of ways. We introduce students to on-line destinations platforms, organise trips, invite representatives from universities and industry to speak and offer personal advice about possible choices:

For those who choose university, 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 meetings 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.

Students are guided closely for university application or vocational opportunities. Mrs Sone Head of Careers is available in The Compass to address any enquiries related to careers, and offers advice guidance accordingly. (

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.
