Beauchamp College benefits from having a Lionheart Academies Trust careers advisor who delivers a one-to-one service and works alongside the Advice, Guidance and Progress team to provide a range of services to aid progression throughout your time at Beauchamp and beyond.

These services include assistance with UCAS and UCAS Progress applications, securing employment and apprenticeships, one to one interviews and help with CVs.

The team also facilitates work experience, careers fairs (internal & external), A-Level and Vocational taster sessions, trips to colleges and universities.

Every year Beauchamp College holds a careers fair attended by higher education institutions, workplaces, public service representatives and the armed services.

We also provide talks on apprenticeships and UCAS and careers on a weekly basis.
