GEORGE PINDAR SCHOOL IS PART OF

Careers and Information, Advice and Guidance

Careers and IAG

Welcome to George Pindar School’s Careers Information Advice and Guidance.

This is where you can find impartial careers advice and information, dates for open days and events, links to education providers plus much more.

“Ask yourself if what you are doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.”

George Pindar School provides a comprehensive programme of careers education information, advice and guidance. Our Library provides a large selection of prospectuses and guides and you are welcome to visit as many times as you wish. We are pleased that we have a dedicated careers adviser Mrs J Bilton who can be contacted via email at: j.bilton@gps.hlt.academy

Even if you think you know what you want to do in the future call in and have a browse through the details if you require more support speak to Mrs T Hall, our Careers Leader, or Mrs Bilton, our Careers Adviser, who can arrange for further Careers Guidance – there is rarely only one route to a career and there may be alternatives that you are not aware of. It doesn’t matter what school year you are in, it is never too early to begin researching your options. This is your future; it is important that you make informed choices. A Careers Guidance interview can help you with your next steps and our Careers Coordinator Mrs Jo Bilton is in school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”  — Confucius

Parents/Carers are also welcome to make an appointment to discuss Post-16 options as we realise this can be an anxious time for everyone!

If you would like to contact Mrs Bilton or Mrs T Hall feel free to email j.bilton@gps.hlt.academy or t.hall@gps.hlt.academy, Tel: 01723 582194
