The Hart School is committed to providing our students with a programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance for all students in years 7–13.
The Hart School endeavours to follow the National Framework for CEG 11–19 in England (DfES, 2003) and other relevant guidance from DCSF, QCA and Ofsted as it appears.
Students’ provision is incorporated into assemblies, tutor activities and focussed collapsed curriculum days (called Life and Soul Days) across the school year. Students also experience workshops and talks from professionals and attend university open days.
Students also use careers software in order to allow them to explore a range of career choices and gain additional information about planned careers.
Our Careers Advisor is also available at parents’ evenings and parents are encouraged to book appointments with the careers officer at these events.
We are working closely with our local business link Amazon to provide students with experiences of the workplace as well as making projects within the curriculum relate to the real world.
Local Enterprise Coordinator
We work very closely with our Local Enterprise Coordinator who helps support the development of a whole school strategy for careers, enterprise and employer engagement.
“We want to challenge perceptions and raise aspirations so that subject/ career choices are free from gender bias and students are able to look beyond their immediate environment to new and exciting possibilities and be inspired about new opportunities they may not have known about or thought they could not achieve.”
