Careers - Sixth Form

The Black Country Virtual Careers Expo will provide information for you and your parents/carers across the Black Country and give you access to a wide range of careers advice. This includes employment information, apprenticeships, skills and training programmes, FE and HE information and SEND opportunities, all under one virtual roof. There will also be a “live vacancies” section for employment and apprenticeship opportunities across the Black Country.

With a fantastic mix of local and national organisations, you can visit all of the online exhibitors and watch a collection of helpful pre-recorded videos to help make the right choice.


Here at The King’s CE school we are working closely with the University of Chester and their outreach team to support our post 16 students. Lots of information can be found below and regarding higher education pathways and all our students are able to offer 1-1 support regarding personal statement writing and a checking service through the University of Chester. 

All students in year 13 also receive 1-1 impartial and independent careers advice and guidance from Carol Facey our careers advisor.
