Careers Service @ MGGS

MGGS broadens horizons and inspires our students to achieve their goals and ambitions

Welcome to our Careers Service

Rachel Pizzy - Careers & Higher Education Co-ordinatorAt MGGS, Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) are taken very seriously. As such we employ a full time, dedicated ‘Careers Leader’, provide an accessible and up-to-date careers library equipped with computers, careers guides and university prospectuses, and offer interactive workshops and talks from businesses, apprenticeships and universities across all the year groups. In addition we offer five Focus Days, spread throughout the academic year, with each year group experiencing careers themed sessions, aimed at encouraging them to think about the future, meet potential employers and practice essential employability skills such as CV writing and interview skills.

Our Careers Service aims to provide students with:

We believe that providing careers education is an essential part of a young person’s development into a young adult. We aim to provide students with:

  • Knowledge as to the wide and varied career opportunities available to them

  • An understanding of the labour market, including industry growth and average wages

  • Advice and encouragement for students to determine their own career path, by focussing on individual strengths and skills

  • Encounters with a wide and varied selection of employers; including interactive sessions on employability skills such as CVs, interviews and skills workshops.

In addition, students can arrange one to one appointments with our full-time Careers Leader to discuss options, CVs, interview practice, apprenticeships, UCAS applications and any other careers guidance. Miss Pizzy can be contacted by email during term time. Each student has access to impartial CEIAG through the school’s careers programme, EPB service and our EBP Personal Advisor.

Both students and their parents also value the extensive advice and careers guidance available to all Sixth Form students.
