Employability and Careers


My name is Chris Holl and as an Assistant Head at Mount Tamar,
I also have a responsibility for all aspects of Careers and
ensuring that all of our students have a full understanding about
the World of Work, industries, the job market as well as training
available in the area. This is to ensure that our students have the
most up to date knowledge and that we have given them all the
tools that they will need for their career development.
The careers policy outlined as a separate link shows the
resources and the training given as well as how we make sure
that parents and stakeholders alike can access information about
the careers programme.

Further to this, we hold a number of events as part of the Mount Tamar careers offer; If you are a provider and would like an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and / or their parents / carers please find further details below

Should you wish to contact me, my email is: and my telephone number is 01752 365128

A further point to note is that all of the website details for careers is reviewed annually and our next review of the data published will be December 2021

We have worked with a large number of fantastic employers including Tesco, National Marine Aquarium,
Dartmoor Zoo and Bluescreen IT. There are more details of work experience placements show within the sub headings in this section of the website. Further to this there are many links to other useful websites which I hope that parents and students alike will utilise to help us to ensure that we give every child within our school every opportunity to have a varied and successful career in the future. If you think that you could help to raise student aspirations by taking part in our careers assembly programme, or even by offering workplace partnerships like the ones we have already, we would love to hear from you. 

Within this section there is also a link to the local market information. For all of our parents and our students, please have a look at this page as there is some very good information regarding the jobs and roles in every sector which will be able to help decide the way forward for you!

All students use the Fast Tomato system (see below) to support their careers and employability activities.

Please contact me on the contact details already outlined and we can discuss in more detail.
Help us to shape our learners' futures.
