Work-Related Learning, Careers Education and Guidance at CFGS Sixth Form

At CFGS we provide all Sixth Form students with a range of opportunities and support to help each student to identify a career path and how to begin their journey beyond school. All girls participate in a practice job interview, followed up by verbal coaching and written feedback; attend a range of UCAS events including sessions on how to write your personal statement; and go on work experience. There are also a number of optional activities which students can sign up for, including business mentoring programs with firms such as Bird and Bird, KPMG and Ernst and Young; support programs for those students interested in applying to Russell Group or Oxbridge universities; and bespoke careers guidance interviews. We have a good careers library and offer a number of curriculum related visits to different workplaces. Together this all helps students’ to increase their understanding of what career and job opportunities are available and how to successfully access these opportunities.
