Lewis had his first guidance interview in Year 10 at Priesthorpe School. He wanted to find out about his options and make decisions about whether he continued with full-time education at school or college. Chris, his Careers Adviser, spent some time explaining the different options, including how apprenticeships are set up and the different jobs you could do.
It is a sad fact that by the age of 16 many young people have developed stereotypical views of what they can and can’t do when they eventually enter the world of work. As much as teachers and careers guidance professionals in secondary school and 6th forms work hard to raise aspirations and broaden their horizons, it can be difficult to shift perceptions that have developed from an early age.

As part of a very successful Career Education Programme at Abbey Grange Academy Shine Careers Professional, Glyn Ellis from the Shine Careers team led a full day of sessions helping year 11 students to be better prepared for job and college interviews.
