Welcome to the Careers Area!

Careers education, information and guidance (CEIG) at The Joseph Rowntree School is provided in partnership with Connexions, a friendly and supportive service for young people aged 13-19 throughout England and Wales.
Students can arrange to make an appointment by request to their form tutor or by completing a yellow appointment request form and placing it in the Connexions post box in the careers section of the Learning Resource Centre. Alternatively, they can see the Careers Co-ordinator Mr Ireton directly. Impartial help is available for any issue however large or small, whether it is choosing a university course, making GCSE subject choices or learning how to write a CV or letter of application.
The Connexions Service is also available to Joseph Rowntree School students outside of school at the Castlegate Centre, 29 Castlegate, York, YO1 9RN.   Tel: 01904 555400
