Dear Parent 

My name is Jackie Ellis and I am the South Dartmoor Community College Careers Adviser 

I understand the current situation is extremely difficult and worrying, especially for those of you with Children in year 11 or 13 who should be doing GCSEs and A levels this summer 

In terms of progression to 6th form, College or University, I would like to offer my support to you, to help you try to plan for your children’s futures 

I will be available through e-mail chose Careers Adviser via the Contact us page and it may be possible to conduct a careers interview through a video calling service. 

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions surrounding careers, courses and qualifications  

Best Wishes
