Careers Advice and Guidance | Cyngor ac Arweiniad Gyrfaoedd 

Given the complexity of the transition between school to work, school to post-compulsory education, and the demands of contemporary labour market, there has never been a greater requirement to provide Career Education at Caerleon Comprehensive School. Careers and Work-Related Experiences has an important contribution to make to the growth of all our students.

Caerleon Comprehensive aims to help all students develop an understanding of the purpose of work in life for themselves and society as a whole. This can be achieved by challenging deeply embedded attitudes and perceptions and raising awareness of the diverse range of educational and employment opportunities that are available.

In Wales, Careers Wales delivers the national professional careers information, advice and guidance service for all ages. It offers a free, bilingual and impartial service, underpinned by access to impartial careers guidance and coaching from professionally qualified careers advisers. Careers Wales helps young people and adults to plan their career, prepare to get a job, and find and apply for the right apprenticeships, courses, training and employment.
