Radyr Comprehensive School aims to improve the knowledge and awareness of learning opportunities and the labour market and help our young people improve self-awareness, raise individual aspirations and support them to make effective decisions about their careers.

We do this through a programme of activities which helps students to choose the 14-19 pathways best suited to their individual aspirations and by developing the skills which will enable them to manage their lifelong career.

Where To Find The Careers Advisor

  • Prepare a CV
  • Find a work experience placement (Years 10 and 12)
