Supporting pupils with careers advice- mentor tutors editable

Supporting pupils with careers advice- mentor tutors editable

This is something I write for Mts to keep them focussed on their responsibilities at this time of the year.Includes links to guidance on applying to holland, the US, the UK etc, personal statement advice and is a good start for the inexperienced MT.I keep track of all of the applications, personal statements and references through a google drive, but you can edit this to link in to whatever you want. This is a brief over-view, a full presentation required an hour and staff were losing the will to live, so I have chopped it to the bare minimum that I think MTs should be doing.
