Careers at Verulam
Verulam is committed to providing the highest quality careers provision and is working towards ensuring that the government’s required Gatsby Benchmarks are in place within our extensive careers programme.
We firmly believe that it is our role to ensure students are informed, have opportunities to reflect, have access to a wide range of careers opportunities and are thus able to make informed choices about each step of their career. In this regard we are building on a history of successfully meeting the needs of all our students.

- Linking curriculum learning to careers
- Encounters with employers and employees
