There has never been a time when careers education has been as important for our students as it is today. The world of work is changing fast and many of the jobs we are preparing our young people for, do not currently exist.  The landscape of education, training and employment opportunities that students need to navigate is more complex and more challenging than that faced by previous generations.

Our role at Onslow St Audrey’s School is to ensure the future generations of young people are prepared and inspired to make a meaningful contribution to the world beyond school. Our careers programme, is a vital component in helping our students achieve their aims and aspirations, so they can move with confidence onto the next stage of their education and into working life.  This means that all students and their parents/carers should be made aware of all their options as they progress through school and into their future life.
