Careers Information, Advice and Guidance at The Hart School

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.

Our careers provision is planned alongside the S.M.S.C. provision and can be found on our school’s S.M.S.C. calendar.

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.

Evaluation of Careers provision 2016 – 2017

In 2016 – 2017, we increased our careers provision for students. This was in order to ensure that students left school prepared for life in modern Britain and to ensure that they made appropriate choices for their planned future.

A fantastic opportunity for our students to grow confidence and problem solving skills! Well done guys!Duke of Edinburgh Awards

Students from Years 9 and 10 went on a hike on Sunday, and walked for 4 hours and 8.5 miles across Cannock Chase, in the pouring rain and freezing cold!

The students used OS maps and did some 6-figure grid referencing to navigate their own way across the Chase to our meeting point.

Well done team, great work!!
