At Holderness Academy and Sixth Form College we aim to provide careers information which is impartial and develops both the knowledge of students and their parents about the possible education, training and careers opportunities that are available and how to pursue them. We recognise students have different career guidance needs at different stages and we have tailored our careers provision to ensure that all students receive the best guidance and support, so they can make informed decisions and plan for their future careers.
In years 7-11 students learn about the world of work and the various routes and options that are available to them through careers lessons that are delivered with the PSHCE programme and, also, through careers focused drop down days. Students can also access individual careers interviews that are conducted by both external providers and specially trained school staff.
In order to give our students the opportunities to learn about work, employment and the skills that are needed to succeed in the workplace, we also work effectively in partnership with other educational establishments, employers and external providers. This is done through a range of enrichment activities including: careers fairs, external visits, guest speakers and work experience opportunities. We are pleased to be currently supported by the Careers & Enterprise Company and delighted to be partnered with MediaRox as our Enterprise Advisor. Through this partnership we are aiming to develop more opportunities for our students to develop their employability skills.
