Christine Mirtle is the new Careers Adviser from Hampshire Futures (part of Hampshire County Council), working at Calthorpe Park School every Tuesday. She is qualified to level 6 in Career Guidance and Development, and is registered with the Career Development Institute. She has worked in education for many years, and most recently as a Careers Adviser in West Berkshire secondary schools and sixth forms.
She sees her role as guiding students to make aspirational, but realistic, informed decisions for their future pathways by asking challenging questions and providing the information and tools for them to explore the possibilities open to them. She encourages them to find out what is out there in the careers world, and research what may suit them, to keep options open and not to be afraid to make decisions when the time is right.
Students can make appointments to see Christine on Tuesdays by sending an email to Careers@staff.calthorpepark.hants.sch.uk and a time will be arranged as soon as possible. They can also speak to Ms Wayman or Mrs Al-Dabagh.
