Throughout Years 9, 10 and 11 students are placed in targeted careers talks with speakers carefully matched to student interest areas in order to enable HVS students to make the best possible decisions about their future careers.
HVS partners with Enterprise M3 and The Careers and Enterprise Company to constantly evaluate the impact of our careers programme on pupils. Further, we routinely assess the impact of individual sessions or interventions on students and, where appropriate, adjust accordingly. We ensure that by Christmas of Year 11 every student has had a one-to-one careers guidance session with a specialist careers advisor, and then identify students that may require further support and work closely with them to try to ensure the best possible outcome.
We also work closely with local colleges and other post-16 education providers to track the destinations of all of our students, and again put measures in place to identify students that may be at risk of not entering education, employment or training in order to put interventions in place.
