Careers advisers

OBA employs the services of three qualified impartial careers advisors. Our careers advisers will see all Year 11 and Year 13 students and are happy to meet with students from any other year groups. For example, students approaching work experience in Years 10 and 12 or their options in Year 9 frequently request appointments. If you wish to make an appointment with one of our careers advisers, please email [email protected]

Our advisers, who works for MPloy Solutions, hold one-to-one careers guidance sessions with students and provide them with expert and impartial advice on the range of opportunities available to them. This is then followed up with an individual action plan, which will be given to students so that further research can be carried out independently.
