Harington School is committed to providing its students with high quality careers advice and guidance that best informs their post 18 options into higher education, degree and apprenticeships, or alternative pathways. Our careers programme aims to ensure that the various needs of all are students are met and delivered in a way that raises their ambitions and aspiration.
At a national level the government has provided schools with clear guidance regarding our responsibilities towards careers. This guidance can be read here. A lot of this guidance references the principles of an effective careers programme set out within the Gatsby Benchmarks. which the school uses to help evaluate our provision.
The careers programme at Harington School has been designed to specifically:
- Ensure that students are fully aware of the opportunities available to them at Post-18 in the fields of further and higher education, degree apprenticeships and direct employment;
- Ensure that students are well placed and supported to make a strong and successful application to their chosen aspirational post-18 pathways;
- To provide students with the necessary work related skills and attributes required to succeed in the work place and further study;
- To ensure that parents are well informed of the support provided and the role they can play supporting career preparation.
Our careers lead is Mrs Natalie Henry-Oliver and she can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01572 772579
The careers information provided on the School website will be reviewed again in January 2023.
