Careers Guidance

Careers Information Advice and Guidance is available to all our students through the school Careers Adviser, Sharron Ward.

Sharron is based in the Careers Office in Neptune room in Trinity. She is in school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays

Her contact details are:Email:, Tel:  023 80670181

Throughout your time at St George Catholic College we aim to provide you with a professional level of careers education, advice, guidance and information to meet your own individual needs.  You will learn about some elements of the world of work through related areas of your subject learning, whilst other learning will be through PSHE and specially organised events and activities.  You can of course ask for an individual meeting with Sharron Ward at any time, alternatively message her through "Teams" or send her an email.

We aim to provide a firm foundation which will enable you to understand and use your abilities to succeed in your future learning and careers beyond your time at St George.

Measuring our success

To ensure our work is effective and helpful to students, the school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme through participant feedback, Southampton City Council annual NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) figures, DFE NEET figures, Compass Assessment Tool and EBP South evaluation.

All information contained in this Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance Programme section is reviewed annually at the start of the autumn term.
