The Isle of Wight Education Federation was established to harness the very best education practice within two large secondary schools and a large A Level sixth-form centre of almost 500 students, to create a culture of continual improvement with increasingly successful outcomes for young people across the Island.

The Governing Body of Carisbrooke College and Medina College is now seeking to appoint an Assistant Careers Leader to, under the direction of the Federation Careers Leader, provide effective and impartial advice and guidance which supports all students across the Federation to make positive and realistic choices in respect of their future education, training and career.
