Need Careers Advice?
The Careers Education Programme is complemented by one-to-one careers advice and guidance. Mrs Colgan provides Careers Information, Advice and Guidance to pupils (Years 7-13) at Bishop Challoner Catholic College and helps students to make informed decisions about their pathways and future career choices.
Mrs Colgan is based in the Careers Office, located next to the Common Room. Advice and support is available for all students on referral and self-referral basis all year round. If you would like to arrange a one-to-one careers interview, please ask your Form Teacher or Head of Year, speak to Mrs Colgan (based in the Sixth Form office Monday, Wednesday and Friday) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
