We encourage all parents to engage with the latest labour market information (LMI) in our region through the GMACS website
LMI includes information such as job roles and descriptions, average salary ranges and whether demand for job types is expected to grow or decline.
You can learn more about Greater Manchester’s labour market on Bridge GM. The careers website icould.com explains how you can use LMI to help shape career decisions.

There is a range of career events that take place throughout the academic year from Drop Down Days to Careers’ Evenings and you will be informed of these in advance by our normal communications system.
Our Careers Adviser is Julie Tindall and all of our pupils are entitled to 1:1 careers advice during their time with us. This occurs more frequently with pupils in year 10 or 11, but Julie will have contact with all of our pupils over the course of an academic year, either in tutor, drop-down days, assembly or offering group sessions for career advice and support. If you would like an appointment with Julie – either for an individual pupil at school or together as a family, she is more than happy to accommodate requests. Please contact her via email above.

As a school – we need your help now, more than ever and we can also help you! We would like our local employers and employees to help our students fulfil their aspirations and goals. We want our young people to understand the World of Work and you could help our students develop the required skills needed to meet employer needs and business/industry challenges.
Think about the skills you would like your workforce to have – perhaps these are skills that are currently lacking and need to be developed in your current and future workforce. Would you like an opportunity to be proactive and influence the future workforce? Do these skills align with a particular subject? (Maths – accountancy OR Physics – Engineering for example)
Please contact the careers leader using the contact information at the top of this page to help us in our mission. Please see our provider access policy above, in line with the Baker Clause.
We have a range of flexible programmes to ensure our students and parents have access to a full careers programme of information through assemblies, drop-in lunch times, parents evenings, careers fairs, apprenticeship workshops, newsletters and project week activities.
Any provider is welcome to contact us to discuss what they can provide for our students and how we can best accommodate your support.
