Careers at Redborne

Careers, Information, Advice and Guidance (CIAG) is provided at Redborne Upper School through the Careers Leader Mrs T Farrow who is available for 1:1 appointments to provide information and talk though options and career ideas including apprenticeships, college courses, employment, CV, Cover Letters and Work Experience training etc. Students in years 9-11 can request an interview through their form tutor. Sixth Form students can request an interview either via their form tutor or by a direct email to Teresa Farrow, Careers Leader. The interviews take place in the careers office, Room 1A, situated on the ground floor of South School. At the end of the meeting every student is given an action plan to have ownership of.

Redborne works closely with the Bedford College group and Barnfield College to ensure that students are aware of college and apprenticeship opportunities post 16.
