HT Careers Programme

This information is designed for students, teachers, parents and employers

At Haileybury Turnford we are committed to providing a careers programme to inform and equip every student in Year 7 to 13 with the information, skills and options needed to ensure they have a successful and smooth transition from education into employment.

We offer a tailored careers programme for each year group, which is designed to inspire our students, raise their aspirations and promote access to different career paths. In addition to year group activities, we also give parents information at planned events throughout the year and listen to student and parent voice regarding careers education through annual focus groups and questionnaires.

In 2014, Lord Sainsbury’s Gatsby Charitable foundation published a report titled “Good Career Guidance”. The report identified eight benchmarks that are core dimensions of good careers and enterprise provision in schools. We are currently working towards meeting all eight benchmarks to ensure our students have the very best careers provision available. The eight benchmarks are:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal Guidance

To help us deliver each of these benchmarks we work with a range of partners and organisations to support our Careers and IAG provision some of our partners are shown below.
