Careers Support at Bishop Milner

We are proud of our careers provision at Bishop Milner Catholic College. As well as a wide range of events throughout the year, including Careers Convention, visiting speakers, off site visits, Masterclasses and Mock Interview events, we also have access to an independent Connexions Careers Advisor. If your son / daughter would like an individual Connexions meeting please ask them to see Mr Handy in the Sixth Form Office to request an appointment. Appointment requests will also be accepted from students via FROG email. Mr Handy is available for informal discussions regarding career pathways before college, at breaktime and after college in the Sixth Form Office.
To contact Mr. Handy (college careers coordinator) please call 01384889422  or email dhandy@bmilner.dudley.sch.uk

As part of our wider careers programme we are always looking for professionals to work with us. Are you able to act as a mock interviewer? Can you offer careers talks? Voluntary placements for Sixth Form students in your workplace? Are you able to offer work experience? If you would like to be involved in the rich pool of talent we are assembling please contact Mr Handy in college who will be keen to discuss opportunities for you to join our programme.

Labour Market Information

Labour market information can be everything from overwhelming and confusing in-depth statistics to hearing about a potential employer starting up near where you live. Learning how to use it can help young people to make informed decisions about their future study and career choices. Labour market information tells you about what is happening in the job market at national, regional and local levels and includes information about jobs and salaries, what skills employers are looking for in different industrial sectors, conditions, communities and future trends.
