Careers and Employability
Careers Education, Careers Guidance and Work Related Learning are integral to a students’ development and growth at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation and serve as a preparation for our student’s transition to adulthood.
The presence of career-related activities will provide the connection between learning and earning, equipping our students with the knowledge, skills and attributes needed to enter and thrive in the working world.
Preparing students for life after school is an important element of our work. Subject specific Career Education will be embedded within the curriculum from Year 7 – Year 13. Through PSHE and work experience students will also have numerous opportunities to participate in General Career Education and Career Exploration activities which will help them their Employability Skills and have an impact on their academic performance. At numerous points throughout the academic year students in Year 7 – 13 will receive a talk in an assembly from one of the Federation’s Career Guidance Practitioners. Over time, career Information will also be available via the school website and through regular updates via letter/email, registration tutors and head of departments.
