Careers information, advice and guidance are now delivered at Sandhill View by our very own Careers Advisor, Julia Robinson. Having worked as a careers advisor in the north-east for over 12 years, Julia has a wealth of experience. Julia is fully trained to Level 6 and is a registered member of the Careers Development Institute.
Her role as a careers guidance advisor is to provide independent and impartial information, advice and guidance to young people regarding their career aspirations. This enables students to explore their post 16 options and future career pathways with The Sixth Form at Southmoor, colleges, apprenticeship and other learning providers.
During year 11, every student is offered a careers guidance interview to discuss their interests, ambitions and the options open to them. Following this interview they will be given a written summary with relevant information and actions required. Careers guidance interviews are also available for all other students throughout the year.
Julia is at Sandhill View Academy on a regular basis as she also provides careers advice and guidance to all other year groups and attends parents’ evenings and other careers events throughout the year. Julia can be found in the Careers Office which she shares with Mrs Akien.
All students at Sandhill View can request an appointment to talk to Julia about their careers plans. You can complete the request form on the letter which is sent out to all parents at the start of the year or see your Head of House or Mrs Akien to make an appointment.
Julia can also be contacted by phone via main reception or directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
