Careers Links for Yr 11 Students

On this we will update each week, links to useful online events, webpages and details of open days and taster sessions that may be of interest to you.

At ACE, you will continue to have your Careers and Personal Achievement (CPA) lessons where you will look at:

  • employability skills (what employers say they are looking for)
  • local job and training opportunities for life after ACE
  • Local Colleges, Apprenticeships and training providers
  • support for making applications and preparing for interviews (including online interviews)
  • Preparing your CV and getting ready to join the world of work
  • any other help you might need to plan for your move on from ACE and School

From January 2021, you will all have a chance to have a one to one meeting with a careers advisor every half term to help you look at your options, plans your next steps and make your applications and interviews.
