Careers and Guidance

CLF Post 16 invests heavily into the advice and guidance to help all students prepare for their future. Students are encouraged to attend a range of events and guidance meetings, such as:  

  • Careers Officer 1:1 meetings to discuss and agree an action plan and next steps 
  • UCAS support and guidance, including personal statements and applications 
  • Career Drop Down Day: Meet the employer, company seminars, mock interviews 
  • Pop-up shops of company visits within an industry or career route 
  • Seminar workshops around a chosen interest or career option, such as Renishaw Engineering or NHS apprenticeships. You can find more on the apprenticeship pages of our website.

Whether a student wants to pursue an apprenticeship route, university, or employment as their next step, CLF Post 16 gives the same commitment to the guidance, support and opportunities available to all students in researching and making the right choice for their future.
