National Careers Week 2024

National Careers Week (NCW), 4-11 March 2024, is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education.

At St Katherine's we will be holding lots of activities and events during NCW:

  • All teaching staff will deliver at least one careers themed activity across the week within their lessons
  • Group sessions on T Levels from Weston College
  • STEM workshop for Year 8 from Evona
  • Sixth Form enrichment session on Successful Communication Strategies from Law Firm Michelmores
  • Year 10 enrichment session "University, what is it all about?" delivered by Bath University
  • Pop-up shop in the refectory providing students with information about careers in the police force
  • Sixth Form assembly from Evona about the Space industry

Parents can be unsure of their teen's options after GCSE or Sixth Form so The Parents' Guide to, in partnership with National Careers Week, has created a free guide giving an overview of what’s available at 16 and 18 years’ old and summarizing different routes teens can take into the workplace.

Parents and students can also sign up for a virtual National Careers Fair during NCW.
