Sian is a highly qualified careers adviser, up to Level 6 in Guidance, with years of experience, who offers impartial, independent, up-to-date advice and guidance to our students.

Sian’s main aim is to explain the various options available to our students, to help them make decisions about the type of employment, training, Further Education or Higher Education they may wish to pursue after leaving school. Sian will also provide OBA students with Labour Market Information which will help to inform them about the types of careers that may be available in their area and which sectors have skills gaps currently and over the next 6 years.

Each student from Years 10 and 11 will be offered a careers interview where they will be provided with quality information, advice and guidance. After their Careers Interview, students are provided with an action plan, which will detail their options, next steps and how to carry out further research.
