Career Sessions

At OLA it is our aim to help pupils on a journey of self-discovery. From Year 7 to Lower Sixth pupils have careers sessions designed to help them think about skills and qualities they have or would like to develop, and areas of interest which they might like to pursue as a job role or career.

In Year 7 the focus is wide and varied as pupils begin to think about the areas they might wish to pursue and their own strengths and areas for development. Moving towards GCSE and A-level the subject focus becomes tighter and more important as plans become sharper and pupils have more clarity about their future. Throughout this process we aim to support the pupil by helping them take practical steps towards securing their future career plans.

Career Guidance Programme

The OLA Career Guidance Programme combines lectures, group discussions, on line assessments and one to one meetings with careers experts. The focus is on strengthening the pupils skills and qualities, developing employability skills, CV and letter of application writing and interview techniques. There is also an annual Abingdon Careers Convention which pupils are invited to attend from Year 10 upwards. In Year 10 we also provide a work experience week giving pupils the opportunity to learn first-hand from industry professionals.

Supporting the delivery of the Career Guidance Programme are teachers, tutors and parents as well as selected suppliers of career education, information, advice, and guidance.


Mr Cez Sissons is OLA’s Head of Career Guidance, responsible for designing, delivering and evaluating the Career Guidance Programme. He is always interested to hear your views. You can contact him by asking your questions in the chat facility and he will respond.
