Aims

Young people are faced with a complex set of demands when making themselves ready for their future careers. South Hunsley aims to ensure that our students are self-confident, skilled and career-ready. This is achieved through a programme of activities that span every year group, from Year 7 through to Year 13 and beyond…

Key features:

  • Access to a range of activities that inspire them, including employer talks, careers fairs, motivational speakers, college and university visits and access to coaches and mentors
  • Links with local employers, to help boost attitudes and employability skills, learn about the range of roles and opportunities available
  • Work experience provision where it is appropriate and beneficial
  • Access to advice on options available at post-16 including apprenticeships and entrepreneurialism, and opportunities available from other post-16 providers
  • Face-to-face advice and guidance to build confidence and motivation
  • Coordinated support from external agencies including the local authority where students are vulnerable, have special educational needs or are at risk of becoming NEET
  • Information on the financial support available to them post-16
  • Information from Jobcentre Plus to develop a smoother pathway between education and work
  • 24 hour access to careers advice from trained specialists at U-explore
  • The opportunity to book a careers appointment with a trained specialist at school - this opportunity is available to all students in every year group
  • Activities during form time in all year groups that promotes awareness of a wide range of career opportunities and progression routes.

Students and parents/carers can register for U-explore website at any time. Just go to www.u-explore.com and register using the school code 44215.
