Careers Programme

 
  • Sam Whitehead, Careers Lead and Partnership & Progression Coordinator
  • Madhu Kapani – Careers Administrator

 

All students at Morpeth will receive an ambitious and aspirational careers education, and leave school equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed and open-minded decisions about the paths they take now and in the future.

We offer students a wide range of learning opportunities and experiences to support their careers education, working closely with a broad spectrum of employers and specialists to deliver our careers programme both in and outside of school.

The school’s careers programme delivers careers guidance for pupils from Year 7 to Year 13 in accordance with section 42A of the Education Act 1997 and the Gatsby benchmarks.

Careers Fairs

Our Careers Fair 2024 was a huge success and it was great to see so many of our students explore future training opportunities and career paths. Watch the video here:

Our Careers Lead, Sam Whitehead, thanks all of the contributors who came to support our students and showcase the wide range of career pathways available.

This event was a great opportunity to raise aspirations and break down the stereotypes surrounding some careers. Students had the chance to ask lots of questions and learn something new, discovering careers which they hadn’t considered before.
