At Westfield, we offer an excellent programme of Higher Education and Careers support for our students, as a natural extension of the guidance offered lower down the school. We
are here to help you take ownership of your future and make your own decisions about what you want to achieve and how you want to get there. There is a wealth of expertise amongst our staff and your Sixth Form tutor will help guide you through the post-18 application process.
Researching careers options is an ongoing process and is embedded in our tutorial programme. There will be some joint sessions and discussions of options but most importantly we recognise that everyone is different with different ambitions.
We will assist you to create an individual and Personalised Plan for post-18. To help ensure you are as well informed as possible about the manifold opportunities available to you, we
organise many activities, including:
- Careers Week
- Visits from Alumni
- Talks from Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham Universities
- Post-18 Evening
- UCAS Event
- Oxbridge Convention
- Online Careers Noticeboard
- Work Experience
- Mock Interviews
These are just some of the ways we will try to help you make informed decisions about the next phase of your life.
Ultimately, you make the choices, but the key to success throughout the Sixth Form is to maintain an open dialogue with all your teachers who are so keen to assist you at every step
