The Careers Department aims to inspire students at Radley to think about their lives beyond A-Levels through a range of activities, opportunities and information.
The Careers programme starts in the Shell year and continues to support boys after they have left Radley. In the Lower School, boys are introduced to business and carry out careers profiling with Futurewise. They are introduced to the CV in the Removes and are expected to think about their skills and achievements as well as their academic prowess. Many parents choose for their boys to undergo more detailed careers profiling in the Fifth year. These boys receive a comprehensive report and discuss their plans in the Fifth and 6.1 year with a professional adviser. It is expected that the Fifths will start work experience during their holidays and will carry out as much as possible during the Sixth form.
The Sixth form allows further careers exploration with talks at College, visits to companies and an annual careers conference held in the summer term. The boys receive the latest graduate employment trends and the majority choose to undergo interview practice.
The Medical Society nurtures our potential medics and vets through a comprehensive programme. An independent careers adviser is available for all boys on a Wednesday afternoon. The Careers Library stocks a number of books, magazines, and prospectuses on careers and gap year opportunities. There are also materials to help study skills, decision making, self-awareness, CV completion and interview techniques. Boys can also follow our Twitter feed or Facebook page to keep up-to-date with the latest information and opportunities.
