Careers Information and Guidance

This page has been designed to help William de Ferrers students and their parents/carers progress towards their chosen career path. Please use the links on the left to discover information on Careers, Apprenticeships and Higher Education.

Planning for the future is important, and we aim to give all our students the best information and guidance available to help them make their choices. From year 8 all the way through to year 13, students have time in their curriculum to develop skills and gather information and experience to best prepare them for their next step, be that making the right key Stage 4 option choices, picking their A Levels, selecting college courses including the new T Levels, or finding an apprenticeship.

The school have recently appointed Directions IAG Ltd who are a Matrix accredited independent careers guidance company that are in school one day a week in order to give impartial careers information, advice & guidance to all students.  Please click on this link to be redirected to the Directions IAG website which contains lots of useful information for students, parents & carers.

Students can also like us on Facebook, Directions IAG Ltd and follow us on Twitter @DirectionsIAG in order to keep up to date with any upcoming events and current job opportunities.

You can contact Directions via email at for more information, or to arrange a one to one careers guidance appointment.

The National Careers Service gives students opportunities to assess careers they may be interested in.  A skills check can also be completed to link students skills, interests and motivations to potential career paths.  Please follow this link to their website.

For any employers or training providers who wish to present to our students, in an assembly or PSHE session we would be delighted to hear from you.  Please contact Mrs Farrar via email at
