Get Involved

We are always keen to engage with parents and carers who are interested in helping us inform and educate students about careers. Parents and carers have previously given careers talks, taken part in mock-interviews, undertaken careers mentoring, or offered to facilitate work-experience.

If you would be happy to be involved in the careers programme, please contact the University & Careers Lead at scavey@langton.kent.sch.uk.
