Here you can find out about the Careers offer at ALNS. When you have opportunities to learn about Careers in each year at school and links to local colleges and up to date information about events in school.

Students are entitled to careers education, information, advice and guidance which is both impartial and confidential. At Key Stages 3 and 4 students are able to access an interview with an independent careers advisor. For students identified within priority groups, provision is made through the Assistant Head: Inclusivity, Head of Key Stage 3 and Head of Key Stage 4. Our school’s career leader is Mrs V Etherington who can be contacted through the school phone number (023 9236 4536) or via email – [email protected].

There is also the opportunity for students to have access to careers advice from independent and local institutions, including Portsmouth College, Highbury College, Southdowns College, Havant College, Fareham College and Chichester College. Strong ties are made with three local Universities through in-school presentations, events, campus visits and published on-line information.

The aim of our Careers Programme is to ensure that all students have access to impartial careers information and guidance throughout each academic year.
