Careers information for students

Throughout your time at Dallam we will highlight different careers and the skills you’ll need and the various routes there are to get to where you want to go.  

When you’re considering your future we encourage you to focus on your interests, what motivates you and think about your skills.  Challenge gender stereotypes, don’t let them sway you from your career aspirations.  Once upon a time female police officers or male nurses would have been unheard of!
