Careers Education Advice and Guidance at Hurworth School has clear objectives. We look to enable our pupils to:
- Develop themselves and their aspirations through careers and work related education
- Find out about careers and the world of work, building strong connections with employers
- Develop skills for career well-being and employability
We are proud of our Investors in Careers accreditation and are committed to providing the highest quality careers education and guidance. Our whole school approach to careers is guided by the eight Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance.
Hurworth School works with Colleges, Universities (Future Me) and Employers to ensure that our pupils’ aspirations are fulfilled.
Careers activities are supported by Penny Hudson, a qualified independent Careers Advisor. Penny also undertakes 1:1 guidance interviews and is a point of reference and support for all pupils.
