Careers

In Ashmole 6th form we are committed to providing students with careers information, advice and guidance so that students can prepare for higher education or careers.

Students will have an opportunity to be involved in a specialised enrichment programme dedicated to continually developing advice and help for higher education or careers. Career guidance is vital and will equip students with the skills, knowledge and understanding required to ensure their future success in their chosen field.
