Careers Education Guidance | Highcliffe School

Careers Education Guidance

This term we are seeking re-accreditation of our Investor is Careers Award which we have held since July 2017. This is the gold standard for careers provision in the UK and is rightly a rigorous and intense process. It showcases all of our careers provision across all year groups and highlights all the great activities, workshops, events and careers guidance that we offer you all. We are confident we will be successful in providing the evidence we need to maintain this award and look forward to updating you further about this in the future.  


At Highcliffe School, all students are provided with the information, guidance and skills they need to make good choices for their future. From Year 7 onwards students are offered a range of opportunities to develop their career aspirations such as interactive workshops, drama productions, careers fairs, employer talks, guest speakers, business mentoring and trips to colleges and Universities.  All students will have a one to one guidance appointment delivered by an impartial qualified careers adviser in Years 11, 12 and 13.  Students can request a guidance appointment at any time throughout their academic life and students will be offered support at key transition points such as Year 9 options, Year 11 career planning and progression into 6th Form.  Parents are able to attend appointments and careers guidance specialists will be at parent evenings to provide any further careers support. 

For further information, please contact Simon Hallam at the Highcliffe School on 01425 273381 or email shallam@highcliffeschool.com.
