Careers home

At Wood Green, we want every student to leave school prepared for life in the modern world. The world of work is constantly changing and competition for good employment is high. We therefore encourage students to plan early and broadly for their own future and we provide support in considering all available options that match their interests and skills.

Students can feel pressurized to make choices earlier than they should, or without the facts and information they need. There can be a huge amount to absorb. We aim to help pupils and parents find their way through, by providing timely advice and guidance right the way across Years 7-13. This support is further enhanced by Wood Green’s strong relationships with independent careers advisers, employers, training providers, colleges, and universities.

Working together, we help students make the most informed decisions about their next steps in education, training or employment.
