Careers Curriculum

At Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School, we aim to prepare our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. Careers education and guidance is an essential part of this process, so we ensure that all our learners get access to a programme of careers education lessons, as well as face-to-face guidance from an independent, professionally-qualified careers adviser.

To support these activities, we share careers information as part of our school topic days and year 11 have weekly input from our careers advisor Sylvia Fellows who is able to provide access to information on local opportunities for work, volunteering, education and apprenticeships.

Recent & Upcoming Events

You can view our range of Careers activities on our school website blog. Upcoming events are also advertised on our social media accounts so be sure to follow our school accounts.
