The New Careers Adviser
Peter Small, Director at The YETI Ltd is the new Careers Adviser at King Charles I School.
Pete is here to provide specialist, intensive support to all our students. He will help them identify a career or aspiration that suits their strengths and passions, matching this to the qualifications they will need and where they can secure these locally. Pete advises the students on options both at the end of Year 11 and Year 13.
Available in School one day per week, Pete will meet with the students one-to-one. With guidance based on accurate labour market information and personalised for the student concerned, all his interviewee’s leave with a personal careers Pathway Plan. The plan outlines their interests, the options they have post-16 and 18 before listing useful websites, blog posts, video’s and contacts to help the students plan for their time after KCI. Alongside the 1:1 interviews, Pete will be working with our Year 8 and 9 students in small groups, helping them to understand the world of work and offering advice on how to choose their options for GCSE’s. For Year 10, Pete will be supporting the year with Assembly presentations, bringing businesses into School to engage with our students, encouraging and helping to identify work experience placements and supporting some of our off-timetable careers events as part of the wider Careers Curriculum programme.
With a broad network of local contacts, University links and knowledge about the jobs available both now and in the future here in Kidderminster and the wider area, Pete is able to help students consider what they want their working life to look like, what motivates them and how they can achieve their aspirations.
