Graveney School



The careers information we provide  is to help both parents and students make fully informed choices at key stages. 

There are  a growing number of alternative and changing progression routes for students to negotiate to achieve the best outcomes for themselves.

It is also important to understand the changing labour market and the impact this may have on career choices.

Here we hope to provide up to date information and links to aid this process. Further information about what our careers provision at each Key Stage looks like can be found in our Careers and Work Related Learning Policy in the 'policies' section of the website. 

Our  Careers adviser is Mr N Tierney

Degree Level Apprenticeships

Degree level apprenticeships are growing fast across a broad range of professional careers sectors. University maybe your preferred route for your son or daughter but it’s certainly worth checking out the great opportunities coming through degree apprenticeships. Student debt after a 3 year degree can be around £40k. They have to be earning above £25k a year before they start paying and any remaining debt after 30 years is written off.  There is no debt through Degree Apprenticeships, with 5 years to complete a degree through an apprenticeship compared with 3 years for a degree at a University.
