Careers telephone advice to support Warlingham Students
As part of our aim to ensure Warlingham students get the best possible Careers Information and Guidance, we would like to make students and parents aware of the national service which has been launched.
The BIS provides a telephone careers helpline for students as part of the National Careers Service. Support is available from trained advisors who will talk through issues, offering confidential advice and practical help. We have been informed that advisers are available from 8am to 10pm, seven days a week. We very much hope that this will be a useful, additional tool which will benefit Warlingham students in guiding them towards the right careers choices.

Independent Careers Advice
We also provide independent careers advice and guidance through an external provider. These appointments can be arranged by contacting Mrs Langley by email at L.Langley@WarlinghamTLT.co.uk.
The Unifrog online program helps students to explore the many different career opportunities available to them. All students in the school can use this platform. This can be accessed both at school and at home. If you have not previously logged in, you can log in initially using the code sent to your school email. All students need to complete the Personality Profile, and the Interests Profile. Once students have done this they can use the research tools for the Subject Library and Careers Library, access a wealth of webinars and podcasts as well as create a log of all careers encounters. If you are having difficulty, please contact Mrs Langley on L.Langley@WarlinghamTLT.co.uk.
The following Padlet contains links to a number of opportunities for students to consider after Warlingham Sixth Form College including university, apprenticeships and the world of work. It’s updated regularly so please do check it carefully to support students with making their next steps.
