Introduction to Ripley Careers Advisor – Miss Kirkbride

Here at Ripley St Thomas, we are lucky to have a careers advisor who can support the pupils with making well-informed realistic decisions about their career choices/paths. Miss Kirkbride works part-time, Monday-Wednesday and during this time will provide pupils with careers guidance for Post-16 and Post-18 progression options including information on career exploration; Sixth Form; Colleges (Further Education); Apprenticeships and work experience.

Pupils will receive at least one careers guidance interview before or during Year 11.

Please click on the link below to book a careers guidance interview and/or ask a question – all queries welcome from pupils and /or parents.
