Careers at NK



In 2015 North Kesteven School was successful in an assessment for revalidation of Careermark, a nationally recognised award for Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance.  This is the fifth time we have been successful in achieving the award, giving us the Gold standard.  This means that we have been recognised as offering high quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance across the school, thus preparing our students for a successful working life by developing the skills they need for the future.
