Careers Programme

All students will have the opportunity for a careers guidance interview to discuss their future plans and ideas. This will include opportunities to discuss career aims and opportunities available after GCSEs.

Support is also available for students when applying for college, apprenticeships or employment including application forms and CVs. Parents and students are welcome to speak to Miss Lawes, Careers Leader about careers information, advice and guidance during break and lunch times alternatively by email at hayley.lawes@hessleacademy.com or by contacting the school on 01482 648604.

The Careers Programme Information is available to download below at the bottom of this page.

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 invited to attend briefing sessions prior to careers activities and are actively encouraged to deliver in a variety of learning experiences.
