Careers Advisers

Students at The Latimer Arts College are invited to a minimum of one individual careers appointment in Years 10 to 11 and again in Years 12 to 13.  Further appointments may be scheduled if required. 

Appointments are with an independent careers adviser who has a Level 6 qualification in Careers Guidance and Development. 

The Careers Adviser collaborates with various school departments, including tutors, Heads of House, and Learning Support staff, to ensure a comprehensive and inclusive approach to career guidance for all students.

Students in other years can also request careers appointments.  All students can use the Careers Drop In session in the Library every Wednesday lunchtime.
