Careers Office

At GFAPS there is a dedicated careers office and careers library, which is open throughout the year, and holds a supply of local college, school sixth form and university prospectuses along with a selection of apprenticeship and industry information. The office is based at Russet House. Careers advice is also held at the Raikes Centre and the Joys Green Centre on Wednesdays (alternative weeks).

Should you require any further information regarding this please contact Russ Clemow. email: russell.clemow@gfaps.gloucs.sch.uk  Phone: 01452 528955.

 

 Professional Advice:

One to one support is provided by the ‘Jobcentre Plus support for schools adviser’, Alan Clark. An adviser visits the school once a week during term time to provide information, advice and support on a one to one basis or in small groups

Our aim is to arrange at least one half hour appointment during KS4 for every single GFAPS student. Most will receive two meetings, with many more students also receiving individual advice in Year 9.
