Careers and Work Experience

Careerometer and Labour Market Information

The Careerometer widget can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations to support the process of identifying potential careers.  It provides access to a selection of headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects.

The data is organised by occupation: simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you.

 

WORK EXPERIENCE INFORMATION

In the new academic year, all Year 10 students will be attending work experience for five days from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd March 2019.

There are hundreds of placement choices on the Northbrook MET Work Experience Directory. (now called the Greater Brighton Metropolitan College).  Please contact Mrs Merrick for login details.

If you would like to discuss your placement options please see Mrs Merrick or email her at r.merrick@davisonhigh.school

 

There are opportunities for all students to speak with Mrs Wood about career paths and college options throughout the year.

College open days and evenings begin in September and run through to January.  Ideally, college applications should be made before the Christmas holidays.  The colleges also offer open events in the Spring term.

Post-16 and other training providers maintain their own details about their courses and open days on their websites.  Davison welcomes these providers into school for events and assemblies. 

Our most local Post 16 providers are Worthing College and Northbrook MET.

You can search and set up alerts for apprenticeships on the Find an Apprenticeship website.

The iCould website is great for exploring different careers, as well as the UCAS website's section on further education
