Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance is part of every student's entitlement. At Chelmer Valley the Careers Coordinator works closely with the Heads of Year, Sixth Form and Tutors to ensure the implementation of the Careers Policy.

The Careers Library is fully resourced and is open to all students during lunchtimes. The IT facility is UniFrog, introduced in Year 7, which is a web based programme providing students with career information, colleges etc. The benefits of being web based is that this programme can be used at home.
