Our dedicated non-teaching team is available to offer clear information, advice and guidance to all of our students. Our team has a wealth of knowledge about careers, apprenticeships, employment and training. They interview Year 10 and 11 students as they make their post-16 choices.

How do we ensure that we offer impartial IAG and support students in making the right choices?

Haileybury Turnford organise a range of external visits to help all students receive impartial IAG. In the last year we have taken students to Further and Higher Education Institutions such as Hertfordshire Regional College and Hertfordshire University enabling students to explore what future opportunities.

Youth Connexions, now branded as YC Hertfordshire, provides youth work, information, advice, guidance, work related learning, outdoor education and support for young people at Haileybury Turnford.  It also provides support for young people leaving care, up to the age of 21, through the Youth Connexions One Stop Shops and work related learning in primary schools.
