Careers


At Pontypridd High School we aim to provide comprehensive and progressive career and higher education guidance to all of our pupils.

In conjunction with external agencies (such as Careers Wales and RCT Employment Education and Training Team) we support our pupils in many ways. We assist them in exploring their career aspirations and help make informed decisions about subject choices, higher education, alternative pathways and future employment. This ensures that our students:

  • Gain valuable work experience
  • Make decisions about subject choices
  • Understand how their strengths, interests and personality fit together to enable them to make informed decisions
  • Consider university options and alternatives to higher education such as employment and apprenticeships

Our Careers Wales Advisor, Rob Evans


I am the Careers Adviser working with Pontypridd High School. I work with pupils to support them with planning and managing their careers over time, recognising that career management no longer consists of a one-off occupational choice, but rather a series of lifelong career transitions.

I deliver independent and impartial careers information, advice and guidance to young people: face-to-face as well as through group sessions, parents evenings and workshops. I can be contacted at school or via Pontypridd Careers Centre (0800 028 4844 Ext:2307) or via e-mail rob.evans@careerswales.com.

Pupils can also speak to a Careers Adviser over the telephone or online via our web service using one of the following:
