Minsthorpe is a successful 11-18 Academy in Wakefield and is the lead school of the Encompass Careers Alliance, a collaborative partnership of thirty schools who aim to provide high quality one-to- one Careers Education and Guidance across West Yorkshire. We have secured funding from the Careers & Enterprise Company to create a hub of schools who are committed to embedding the Gatsby Benchmarks in their schools and to ensure that every student in that school receives more than the recommended one-to-one interview with a qualified Careers Guidance Professional.

Thus we are looking to appoint a Personal Guidance Professional to provide high quality, independent CEG to enable students in a variety of schools across West Yorkshire to make informed, realistic decisions about their future learning and employment pathways.

The successful candidate may have previous experience when it comes to Careers Education and Guidance but could also be a graduate candidate who is passionate about changing and shaping the lives for our young people. Candidates already possessing the QCF Level 6 Diploma in Careers Guidance and Development will find themselves at a distinct advantage. However, training for the role and relevant qualifications will be provided and funded for the right candidate!
