Excellence in careers education and guidance is important at Chepstow School. We provide a comprehensive Careers program that facilitates young people to make a wider range of decisions. Students at Chepstow gain an awareness of the need to learn about the significant changes occurring in the world of work and it provides them with transferable skills required in the workplace.

The Careers programme is delivered throughout the pastoral program during tutor time. Students in year 7-13 will have access to www.careerswales.com and they will build a learning pathway plan to help support their learning. Chepstow students will have access to guidance in order to help form long term goals and plans for their future Careers.

Access to Careers and guidance is of paramount importance. At Chepstow School, we are fortunate to have an experienced Careers Wales advisor on site, Joanna Page. She is currently available within the school Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Additional Careers Support available

Interviews with Years 11, 12 and 13 can be booked direct with Joanna Page – joanna.page@careerswales.gov.wales
