Our new Gardening Club (HHGC) have now planted over 138 pots but have room for more! If you are able to donate seedlings or potatoes we would be very grateful. Bags of compost and a greenhouse would really put smiles on our faces!

Careers

Careers And Employability At Hampton High

The key elements of a good Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) Programme should be to develop the self awareness, opportunity awareness, decision making and transition planning skills of its students. It should also look to raise aspirations, broaden horizons and breakdown stereotypes. It should help students to understand the purpose, and benefits, of education and it should aim to inspire them to greater achievement in their formal qualifications as well as successful progression into the next stage of their lives, and the ‘world of work’ in the longer term.

All students will:

  • Develop a deeper understanding of themselves, their abilities and affinities
  • Gain a greater knowledge of the range of opportunities open to them
  • Take part in work related activities in and out of school
  • Understand the labour market and the requirements and expectations of employers
  • Learn to make decisions wisely about their future
  • Be fully prepared to manage change and be fully supported through key transition periods
  • Learn how to improve their own employability: how to find work, how to get work and how to progress their careers


A robust and inspiring CEIAG programme should be an integral part of the whole school and, as a result, Hampton’s CEIAG programme incorporates both formal careers education, information, advice and guidance activities, as well as other opportunities linked to each of the students’ subjects, whether this is delivered through/by bespoke lessons, external speakers, educational visits or developing our staff’s knowledge of the careers and opportunities linked to their subject areas. We believe that the whole school staff has a responsibility for the ‘careers education’ of its students and, therefore, it is important that all staff maintain an up-to-date knowledge of the opportunities that relate to their subjects, encourage students to explore ideas and are happy to provide additional information to students, or to refer them to other resources/colleagues with a more specific knowledge.

Year 7

Next Step – Students are supported in their transition from primary school into secondary school and begin to learn more about themselves.

Year 8

Exploring Work – Students explore the world of work gaining a greater understanding of employers expectations, employability skills and the labour market through the Careers Carousel.

Year 9

Preparation for GCSE Options – Students are given several lessons to prepare them for the decisions they need to make in February of Year 9.  They learn more about how to make decisions wisely, understand more about the range and structure of their choices and are supported in this by 1:1 careers appointments.

Year 10

Preparation for Progression – Students undergo a programme of education, information and guidance to help them make the vital decisions about their future.  A series of lessons in tutor time teaching them about effective decision making, explores their options and gives support in making their applications. College visits are organised for all students.

Year 11

Preparation for Progression – Students undergo a programme of education, information and guidance to help them make the vital decisions about their future.  A series of lessons in tutor time teaching them about effective decision making, explores their options and gives support in making their applications.  It covers the full range of routes into their future including sixth form, FE College, apprenticeships and school leaver programmes.  This is supported by 1:1 careers interviews and a Careers Carousel.
