Careers in English Talk!

Careers in English Talk!

A level English students were challenged by our careers advisor to consider how their studies are developing transferrable skills which are valued by employers in our local community. Carol provided some fantastic resources that were tailored to careers directly linked to the study of English, such as Marketing, Teaching, and Writing but also helped students understand why English is such a valuable subject in developing skills useful in any future choices.

Thank you, Carol!

To anyone considering studying English at A level, please remember: More than any other subject, English – and especially reading – gives pupils access to the rest of the curriculum and is fundamental to their educational success – Ofsted.
