Anna Finlason

My name is Anna Finlason and I work as a Careers Adviser with students studying at The Bulmershe School. The best thing about my job is helping students to consider which careers and pathways into careers which might not only suit them, but enable them to flourish in their educational and working lives.

I enjoy working in a number of schools in Berkshire and, although I am new to advising students at Bulmershe, I am very familiar with the school, having been a pupil here quite a number of years ago! I come into school to deliver careers guidance sessions with Year 11 students but also offer help and advice to some students in the Sixth Form.

With Year 11 students, we look at different ways of researching any career ideas they have so they can identify careers which truly suit their skills, abilities and personality. We also consider the whole range of options available, including Sixth Form, College or Apprenticeships so they can decide which route is best for them.

Careers advisers never tell students what to do! Armed with enough relevant, comprehensive, appropriate information and self-awareness, the students can hopefully decide for themselves. With sixth formers, we often talk about career plans, going to university, writing personal statements, non-university options, sponsored degrees, etc.

I welcome students to pop in and see me during break or to send an email with any questions they have. E-mail:
