Careers and Guidance
The Education Act (2011) has provided school with the opportunity and the freedom to deliver a programme of careers advice which best meets the needs and requirements of our students.
Hungerhill School are now working with John Jackson, a freelance Independent Careers Advisor, to provide a bespoke careers advice service to our students. We can consequently ensure that individual careers guidance interviews are available to all students at key times. Support is also always available at parents' evenings.
Careers advice can play a fundamental role in raising aspirations, maintaining motivation, and ensuring students progress to appropriate further learning. We want students to see beyond the end of Year 11 and understand the consequence of their decisions as they plan towards University study and higher level job roles.
John has been continually involved in the delivery of careers advice to students and works directly with schools, delivering a service that is tailored to the needs of the institution.
Parents are encouraged and welcome to attend careers interviews. Parents requiring further information about the careers service support can reach John by email at:
Other contacts in relation to careers information are Mrs K Crosby and Mrs J Rivers.
