Careers at Netherhall Learning Campus
The role of the Careers Department is to equip students with the skills and knowledge that they need to make informed decisions at key points in their school lives and ultimately to prepare them for the world of work. Embedding this Careers support within our Curriculum, our aim is to enable all students to achieve their full potential.
We have developed an NLC Careers Portal where you can find lots of important information regarding different careers, local employers and employability skills along with Labour Market Information (LMI). It also has information on choosing options in Year 8, applying for sixth form, college, apprenticeships and going to university. There are lots of videos , podcasts and websites to visit.

We are keen for our students to explore all the options available and to realise what potential pathways are open to them. There is an extensive programme of events and lessons that are available to students from Year 7 to Year 13.
