Mrs Carruthers is a Level 6 qualified Careers Adviser and a Level 7 qualified Careers Leader at Astrea Academy Dearne. She is determined that when our students leave Astrea Academy Dearne, 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. You can find her in the Careers area in school at lunchtimes 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 Mrs Carruthers at school to discuss any questions you may have about careers and post 16 options.
