Careers and Guidance

Miss Mills is the Careers Leader and Level 6 registered Career Development Professional at Astrea Academy Dearne. She is determined that when our students leave Astrea, they do so having made a well informed and realistic decision about their next steps in life. This means starting the process long before reaching Year 11.
If you are a parent/carer, employer or provider you can contact Miss Mills via email – or by calling the school phone number.
Miss Mills is available in the Careers room at breaks, lunch and after school for drop-in sessions. If you would like a careers guidance interview for further help with decision making, this can be booked for you. If you are a parent or carer, you can contact Miss Mills at school to discuss any questions you may have about careers and post 16 options.
