Careers Advisor

In School Wednesdays


Over the time that your son/daughter is at St Peter’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, they, with your support, will be making a number of decisions relating to their future. We know how important and life changing these decisions can be, and this drives us to ensure that everyone receives the best possible careers education. During their time at St Peter’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, students are involved in activities and opportunities to develop their skills and understanding of the world of work. This enables them to make informed choices for their future in line with their strengths and areas of interest.

As a school, we have a statutory duty to provide access, for young people in years 8 – 11, to impartial, independent information, advice and guidance on careers. We are very pleased to inform you that we work in close partnership with the Routes to Employment Team. Your son/daughter’s Careers Advisor is Mr Paddy McMahon. We also have our own dedicated Head of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG), Mrs J Hutchinson, who is available on a daily basis to assist your son/daughter with any aspect of careers advice they require and to guide them along their individual career path.

Through the Personal, Social, Careers and Health Education (PSCHE) curriculum programme your son/daughter will be provided with lots of opportunities to explore career options available to them in the future. The dedicated Careers Team are available to deliver quality careers guidance and support every step of the way. In addition to PSCHE lessons your son/daughter will be invited to participate in a range of events with colleges and training providers, and also local employers, organisations and universities.

Our Careers Entitlement Book aims to outline the opportunities your son/daughter will experience throughout their journey through St Peter’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, however, our advice and guidance is constantly evolving to reflect the changing world of work. We aim to enable our young people to embrace opportunities for their future and to prepare them to take their place in the workforce as valued and productive members of the community.
