Career Guidance

Our Team

We have a dedicated team of career counsellors in our Career Guidance and Counselling Department who help students identify talents and potential and open up career possibilities.

We provide three main areas of counselling:

  • Personal guidance and counselling
  • Educational guidance and counselling
  • Career guidance and counselling

The department also offers practical One to One personal assistance on college/university applications – both at home and abroad – and our modern, up-to-date careers library is a major asset to pupils.
