Careers Update

The S6 careers talk was delivered today along with a fantastic input from some of our former students who spoke about their experiences of, a gap year, college and university study along with modern apprenticeships and full time jobs. You can view the talk at: www.edubuzz.org/careers/2017/06/07/nbhs-s6-talk-june-2017/ and you are welcome to email me with any questions or comments. Part of the session also included feedback from our current S6 students which you may find interesting!
