Post 16 Pathways and Careers

Meet the Team

Mrs Carruthers – CIAG, Business & Enrichment Leader

Mrs Carruthers is a Level 6 qualified Careers Adviser at The Dearne ALC.  She is determined that when our students leave The Dearne ALC, they do so having made a well informed and realistic decision about their next steps in life.  This means starting the process long before reaching Year 11.  You can find her in the Careers area in school at lunchtimes for drop in sessions.  If you would like a careers guidance interview for further help with decision making, this can be booked for you.  If you are a parent or carer, you can contact Mrs Carruthers at school to discuss any questions you may have about careers and post 16 options.  

Mrs Ellis – Community Enterprise Manager

Mrs Ellis works within the Careers and Work Related Learning Faculty at The Dearne ALC. She is committed to making sure that our students  benefit from the links of the local and wider community.  Mrs Ellis co-ordinates many community work related learning projects.  She leads on the Made In Barnsley and Raising Aspirations programmes and helps Mrs Carruthers on many aspects of the Careers, Education, Information and Guidance curriculum.
