Careers Guidance

Be future ready

Preparing students to be leaders of the future in their chosen field is central to Westbourne’s mission. With one-to-one careers mentoring from our dedicated team, IB Sixth Form students at Westbourne are also supported through a groundbreaking careers and destinations platform. This personalised service empowers students to discover and apply for the best careers opportunities across the globe.

Informed by the eight Gatsby pillars of careers excellence, the platform includes a global database of universities, placements, scholarships and summer schools, through which students can compare degree programmes across the world, including at all Oxbridge, Ivy League and US colleges. Students can also access round-the-clock subject and careers libraries, expert podcasts and TED talks, as well as “super-curricular” activities such as webinars run by employers.

The careers hub enhances Westbourne’s leading careers provision, which includes weekly one-to-one mentoring, open-door access to staff, university preparation workshops, and professional development opportunities such as the acclaimed INSEAD business programme in Paris.

"I loved my time at Westbourne! The staff are so friendly and supportive and the smaller class sizes mean that it really feels like a family. I could really push my limits whilst there and achieve my full potential because I knew all the help was there whenever I needed it. I made some amazing friends while I was at Westbourne and the memories and relationships that it gave me will always have a special place in my heart." Hannah, medical student - 44 IB Points
