At LSGS, students are engaged in a programme of Careers from Year 7 onwards. They have access to resources and opportunities are available to support them.
Lubavitch Senior Girls’ School provides careers advice and guidance, to support our high achieving and ambitious students. This is developed throughout a student’s time at the school and is always supportive of their aspirations, strengths and skills.
All learners will take part in a programme that helps them to:
- Understand education, training, employment, and other progression opportunities
- Develop skills to help them plan and manage their own development and career progression
- Access relevant information
- Learn from activities, visits and work experience
Almost all our pupils go on to higher education, the majority of the students at LSGS go to seminaries across the globe, primarily Israel as well as America and Canada. Thereafter, many go on to be shluchas around the world (on almost every continent including many states in America, Australia, New Zealand, all over the UK and Europe, South Africa, Mexico and many other countries).
Students also go into a wide range of sectors including teaching, design, media, medicine.
