Careers Continuum

Hanson Schools Careers Continuum

‘We aim to provide all of our students with a high-quality careers programme so they can make the correct career choices that are right for them, based on their own needs.  We believe that students who become more self aware of their own needs and aspirations become more engaged with their education and this drives them on to reach their potential.

Hanson School is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education, information and guidance for all students in Years 7-13.  We will be using the Gatsby Benchmarks to improve the careers provision within school and we the aim to provide all students with as many opportunities as possible to listen to, meet and speak to different employers, further and higher educational institutions and apprenticeship providers so they can make informed decisions about their future pathways.  We are committed to forging new working relationships with local employers and businesses to further enhance the careers programme and improve the opportunities for our students.’
