Working in close liaison with our team of Personal Tutors, our professionally qualified Careers Advisers can provide expert advice and guidance on everything from understanding routes beyond college, looking for apprenticeships and jobs, and applying to university.

Students receive individualised support to develop their own unique pathway beyond Cadbury. This is conducted through a combination of group tutorials, internal and external events and specific one to one meetings. Cadbury learners participate in a range of events throughout the year including Higher Education & Career/Employer Fairs, university talks and visits and one to one specialist advice & guidance meetings.

"I understand more what it takes to be a teacher and the pressures that come with the job. I was given truthful, helpful feedback that will help me improve in future work experience placements and in my chosen career."

"This work experience opportunity has allowed me to work on and improve the skills and abilities that I am least confident with - it stretched me and helped me grow as a person. I believe doing a work experience will help other students who are wanting to improve themselves."
