Careers Development and Transitions

At QIS we understand the importance of helping students to explore and plan for their future aspirations. Our Careers Guidance is designed to support the diverse and global nature of our students as they enter the world beyond school.

Deciding what to embark on in higher education and in the world of training and work can be a challenging task, and so our careers guidance aims to guide and support students through this process. We understand that some students may not know what specific career they may want to pursue in the future and so we aim to develop our students into becoming career managers who are able to independently research to make and pursue the best possible educational and occupational choices for their futures.

At QIS, our careers exploration begins in Year 9 where students attend a careers day dedicated to supporting students with their IGCSE subject choices. This support continues to our Year 11 students moving into Sixth Form with a variety of workshops offered to students surrounding university applications from across the world and how to develop important life skills before leaving QIS for higher education or training. At Sixth Form, students are constantly informed about university related deadlines, external assessments that some universities may require as part of application processes, guidance on Personal Statement and Common App Essay writing and students are encouraged to attend a variety of open days and university fairs. We aim to provide a smooth and seamless transition to a love of lifelong learning and career development especially in a rapidly changing labour market.
