The Priory Learning Trust's Careers offer to students-

James Wilmot - Director of Careers. James is a Psychology Graduate with many years’ experience of private sector recruitment and public sector careers advice. James joined TPLT in 2015. A Careers Office is placed centrally in each school. They are open from 8.00am - 4.00pm Monday to Friday and until 7.00pm on Parents’ Evenings.

James manages a team of Careers Advisors with one placed within each school to provide impartial 121 advice and guidance for each student while running a range of appropriate and impactful careers events and activities.

You can speak to a member of the team by calling each school or by e-mailing james.wilmot@theplt.org.uk

We traditionally run a wide range of careers related events and activities throughout the year such as work experience week, mock interview days as well as college an 6th form taster days. Each school runs its own calendar of events and each differs slightly.

A monthly careers and events bulletin is circulated by tutors, emailed to parents/carers, and updated on each school’s Facebook page, screens and noticeboards.

Each school’s careers programme is assessed biannually against Gatsby benchmarks in partnership with The Careers & Enterprise Company.

A document outlining our trust-wide careers programme can be found here.
