Careers Support

Interim Careers Lead- Mrs Keyes

T: 01603 508520 


Due to the unique nature of our cohort, here at The Short Stay School for Norfolk we have developed a bespoke package of support for our pupils. This aims to maximize the number of pupils who are in education, employment or training on leaving school, regardless of their time of arrival. There are Careers Champions across all of the bases who play a role in ensuring that careers education is embedded within the bases.
