Welcome to our online Careers Library

Our online Careers Library is aimed at giving support to both students and parents/carers wishing to support their young people in their future planning.

Here you will find links to lots of websites and documents that will help you to plan for your future.

The site is divided in to sections to help you navigate to the information you are looking for.    These sites support work done in PSHE/Citizenship lessons. 

Don't forget you can access careers software at school and at home, and get advice from your tutor, your carers teacher or ask for a referral to our careers advisors.

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

We are also supported by ideas4careers who provide our individual student careers meetings.  All of their advisors are Level 6 qualified and experienced in supporting young people.

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,  or web-chat.  All calls are confidential.  This is part of the National Careers Service.
This site has replaced the Connexions Direct site and has some of the content.  There are sections for Careers Tools (Skills Health Check, Job Hunting support, Course Finder and Job Profiles).  You can still get one-to-one advice from a Careers Advisor via phone and web-chat 14 hours a day.
Although this is aimed at young people in Norfolk, there is still lots of useful information to help you make good choices from Year 8/9 upwards.
