Careers Programme

We aim to ensure that our students are self-confident, skilled and career-ready through our integrated programme of high quality careers activities, advice and guidance.

Planned and progressive programmes of activities in the curriculum help students to develop the knowledge and skills to increase self and opportunity awareness, make well-informed decisions and transition successfully on to the next stage.

The Department for Education issues all schools with statutory guidance regarding the delivery of high quality careers guidance. The Careers Programme at The Hessle Academy follows the guidance in this document by providing a comprehensive programme of careers guidance in partnership with local employers, other education and training providers, Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership and other support agencies.

All staff are encouraged to share their skills and workplace experiences in a contextual manner with students throughout their daily contact both explicitly through careers activities and lesson delivery and also implicitly through the demonstration of 'softer skills' such as empathy. Staff are given information prior to careers activities and are actively encouraged to deliver in a variety of learning experiences.

The Careers Programme for Year 7 - 13 is available to download below at the bottom of this page.
