"High-quality guidance informs students of their future options and prepares them very well for employment, training or further education." (Ofsted)

The Wavell has a very comprehensive careers programme. Careers lessons are delivered by Form Tutors through the PSHE programme in conjunction with citizenship, and cover a range of topics including decision-making, self-awareness and communication. Details of the Careers Programme and Community involvement are listed here... Students have access to a well-maintained Careers Resources Library within the LRC which is staffed throughout the day.

Resources available include:

  • College prospectuses
