Welcome to UAE South Bank Higher Education and Careers. We will be working with students to enhance their understanding of the current labour market as well as explore their options in Higher Education, Apprenticeships and future careers.
Our aim is to ensure we equip all of our pupils with the necessary tools and confidence so that they may be ready to take on the world of work. We will also be striving to provide the best support that we can offer in order to help each of our students succeed with any applications or programmes they wish to undertake.
Over the course of the academic year, we will be working with all students in various activities and would like to ask parents to help support us in doing so. We want to ensure that each student gets a chance to develop an understanding of what it means to work and what they would like to work towards. Having the support of parents would also be of great value in creating a cohesive approach and collaborative attitude toward Higher Education and Careers.
Our aim for 2020 is to ensure each year group experiences and gains knowledge in the following areas:
Year 7: Introduction in to work and higher education
Year 8: The job market today
Year 9: Pathways in to careers and higher education
Year 10: The world of work
Year 11: Higher education, Jobs and Apprenticeships
Year 12 & 13: Experience and pathways after school
Further details of various activities and events for each year group will be published on the ‘Events & Registration’ page as and when we are able to secure dates and confirm. We ask parents to support the school and our students by encouraging their children to be as involved as possible and attend as many programmes on offer to make full use of every opportunity presented to them.
If you are a student wanting to register your interest on a programme, then please go on the ‘Events & Registration’ page and follow the instructions. Please be mindful of application forms and registration deadlines, and give yourself plenty of time to go through and alter any mistakes.
Many employers will expect students to have a CV and a personal statement at hand. We advise students to have one prepared if they are intending on participating in any Careers or Apprenticeship fairs. For guidance on how to construct a CV and a cover letter, please click this link below:

Our Careers Advisor, Miss Wilson, is based in the LRC every Friday and will be holding one to one meeting’s with students to discuss Higher Education, Apprenticeships and Careers with allotted time slots. However, the Careers Advisor is available to all students to guide and answer any questions or queries that they may have so all students are welcome to drop in and ask questions should they have any.
If any parent wishes to speak to a member of the Careers team about any concerns they may have or need any support, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with the school or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
