Copleston High School

Whatever stage you are at with your career decisions, we can provide resources to help you, both in school and on this website. 

I don't have any idea what career I am interested in:

Start by thinking about the subjects and activities you enjoy. There are online quizzes you can do to find out what career you are best suited to. Talk to parents/carers, teachers, form tutors and friends to find out what you are good at. There are lots of general websites to support you with this on our General Advice and Inspiration page. 

Come along to one of our Future Fridays careers events

Consider booking a careers interview via our IAG team or speak to your form tutor

I have a possible career area in mind but I'd like to explore it further and find out more about it

Browse Careers Information By Sector on our website

Speak to our IAG team to find out more

Speak to subject teachers linked to your area of interest, who may have experience or knowledge that can help you 

Think about how you might arrange work experience in this area. Speak to us to see how we can help with this. There are age limits for certain types of work experience. 

I have decided on my career route and I am ready to take the next steps

If you know how to apply for the next step in your career route, whether this is Sixth Form, college, university, apprenticeships etc. you are ready to get started. However, you need to make your application as polished and professional as it can be. Check out the links for advice about CVs, covering letters, UCAS personal statements and interview skills.
