Careers at Therfield School

Therfield School recognises Careers guidance as an important part of raising aspirations in young people. ‘Excellent careers guidance makes sure there is equality of opportunity. It unlocks potential and transforms outcomes for people of all ages’. (Careers strategy: making the most of everyone’s skills and talents, DFE, December 2017).

Students in all year groups will enjoy careers related experiences throughout the year and take part in our Careers Week which culminates in a careers and skills fair.  The fair is well attended by a number of local and national employers and institutions.  Please refer to the table below for an overview of the careers activities we provide.
