Careers

Planning and preparing for YOUR FUTURE requires you to be PROACTIVE from an early stage. Mosslands is here to support every student with their career planning. We work in partnership with Anja Koermer, our dedicated independent Career Connect Careers Adviser.

Anja is available in school three days per week offering individual guidance appointments, delivering careers sessions and organising careers events that allow our students to explore, aspire and work towards their individual career goals.

If you would like to make a careers appointment for yourself or for your 6th former please email Anja directly or request a meeting through the 6th form office.

anjakoermer@mosslands.wirral.sch.uk

What can you expect from a careers meeting?
 

Anja will treat you with respect and work with you to explore your ideas and goals. Anja will do this by listening to you and talking to you about your interests, motivations and ideas. Anja will not make fun of any of your ideas or dismiss anything you say, but will encourage you to develop a realistic and achievable plan to work towards your goals whatever they may be. Anja will never make a decision for you or push you into something, but will support you in finding opportunities and making plans.

You can have as many appointments as you like whilst in school, just drop in at the Careers Office located in the 6th form common area to make an appointment.
