Hi my name is Mr Noakes and I am the lead for careers education at John Willmott School.
Mrs K Dwyer also works alongside me and the leadership link is Miss T Richards.
Open Days, Tasters & Trials
I am available to support students from any year group in school regarding their ‘next steps’ as they progress through school and leave school either at the end of Year 11 or Year 13.
Students can drop in and see me in room 34 or contact me via email – firstname.lastname@example.org. So students, please feel free to email me with any questions you may have regarding your ‘next steps’ or want to know anything else about the careers programme, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Provider Access Policy Statement
We work with partners to ensure students have access to a range of educational and training providers at the relevant phase of their education including approved technical qualifications or apprenticeships. Partners will be invited to be represented at key careers events that will be timetabled throughout the year. In line with the Technical and Further Education Act 2017 partners will be involved in careers fairs and assemblies and on mutual agreement opportunities for visits and workshops will be facilitated. Providers wanting to be involved in the structured careers programme should contact the Careers Lead at the school to discuss feasibility. Grounds for access will be agreed on an individual basis and on student need. Details of premises and facilities will be provided by each careers lead to partners.
