Careers Guidance

Crown have a long list of programmes which will help you with your career development. On the job learning is one of the best ways to learn and enhance your career prospects.

Apprenticeships are a tried and tested training programme to help you onto the career ladder, or to enhance and develop your skills as your career progresses.

A ‘job for life’ is no longer an option for most of us in today’s fast changing economic climate. There are so many new opportunities presenting themselves at many stages throughout our working lives.

Careers guidance is applicable to us all, at any age, as we develop transferrable skills with each job role. With some advice and guidance, and sometimes just a point in the right direction, we can find a career which matches our personality and aspirations.

You can search the National Careers Service for information on a whole range of job roles with expected earning potential and alternative career choices

Our staff can help you identify transferrable skills you have acquired and help you explore options which may suit you. Whether you are a school leaver overwhelmed with the choice and options available to you after GCSEs, or you are unsure of your current prospects, there are numerous toolkits available online which will help you to explore potential careers, for example:
