Careers and Connexions

HGSS is committed to developing workplace alongside academic skills and, as a Business and Enterprise School, the workplace relevance in every subject area is stressed in class as well as on careers and options events.

Careers education is a major aspect of our Personal, Social, Health, and Citizenship programme as well as Enterprise learning across the whole school in every Key Stage. We have a dedicated and well resourced Careers Library as part of our Learning Resource Centre with web-based and interactive ICT as well as paper-based resources and materials.

The school is particularly proud of its strong partnership with Connexions Buckinghamshire who provide expert careers guidance through one-to-one interviews in school.

All year 11 pupils will receive at least one 1:1 interview with one of our Connexions Personal Advisors. In addition pupils from all year groups are encouraged to make use of the drop in sessions available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursday lunchtimes.

You can also visit the website www.connexionsbucks.org.uk for further information and advice. Pupils may find www.passportfolio.com useful – it is a free online careers and employability planning website.

In addition www.parentalguidance.org.uk is designed for parents and carers wanting to help their child move forward and make the right decision for them.

For any students in Years 11,12 or 13 interested in apprenticeship opportunities the following website is the place to look: www.apprenticeships.org.uk

However we do also often hear about local apprenticeships so please look on the notice board in the LRC or ask your Connexions advisor if you need support or advice with this career route.
