Careers Information

Who can I speak to?

Mrs Milliner, Careers Co-ordinator - email:

The Careers department at SJWMS

There is a comprehensive careers education programme for all year groups delivered through Life Skills lessons, tutorials and across the curriculum. This includes activities on self-development, career exploration, and career management and explores further and higher education options. Students are also engaged in work related learning, including work experience in year 12. Impartial (unbiased) careers guidance interviews are available for access by any student and appointments can be made via Head of School or direct using the link below to contact Mrs Milliner, the Careers Co-ordinator. The Careers Office is in the library. Impartial advice can also be accessed from Medway Youth Trust and the National Careers Service, which helps adults too. Use their callback facility. In addition, students can access a variety of careers related information in the library and on Moodle/Careers. The latest news, including labour market information and job alerts, is posted through the noticeboard facility on Show My Homework.  Careers Planner can be used by all students across the school to research all things careers related.  The software helps you create an action plan, CV and Personal Statement.  The school has achieved the full Investors in Careers Award which recognises the good practices we have in place. We are the first school in Medway to achieve this prestigious award.

The Careers Education map for all year groups can be found below.

    Booking a Careers Interview

    You can arrange a Careers Interview via your Head of School or by using the link here. Your careers interview is a confidential, impartial discussion with a qualified Careers Guidance Adviser. Don’t worry if you have no definite plans. We are here to encourage and support you while you are making decisions about your future. Depending on your needs, it may be helpful to have several discussions, so don’t think of your careers interview as a 'one-off’ event.

    The school is an affiliate member of the Careers Development Institute (CDI) and the Careers Co-ordinator abides by their code of conduct which can be found here.
