Harlington School commits significant resources to high quality careers advice. We have a full time independent fully qualified careers advisor.
As a school we are passionately committed to the delivery of Careers Education , Advice , Information and Guidance. At a time when many schools have been criticised by the government for reducing Careers provision we have increased our provision.
We deliver a package of Advice Information and Guidance to pupils in year 7 to year 13.
Year 7, 8 and 9, and 11 have a taught Careers program that is delivered through drop down days and PSHE lessons.
Pupils in year 8, 9,10,11,12 and 13 are offered individual appointments every year if they need any extra support.
All pupils in year 9 and 11 are given individual interviews and small group sessions to prepare for their GCSE and A Level decisions.
All year 12 and 13 have access to individual sessions and the drop in service.
We have a dedicated Careers room with access to prospectuses and careers information and local employment trends.
We also organise a yearly Careers Fair that is attended by over 30 local employers, apprenticeship providers, higher education establishments and universities . This is a hugely successful event that is open to pupils in year 10 to 13.
As part of our careers provision we also host a series of STEM workshops. These show pupils the benefits of careers in Science, Technology , Engineering and Mathematics.
