Careers

At HAB, we believe that a well-structured and highly effective programme of Careers and Education Guidance will play a key role in contributing to how the Academy prepares its young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

Good career guidance is the key to social mobility. It is about showing young people whatever their social and family background the options open to them and help them make the right choices to set them on the path to rewarding future careers. 

We especially want to highlight and provide exposure to careers that are less well-represented by women, including STEM related industries.

Working in partnership with external agencies, we will provide accurate and focused careers information, advice and guidance tailored to individual needs and thereby ensuring that our students will be able to make informed choices about their career pathways.

By the time students leave HAB, they will be well informed about a variety of qualifications, including those of a technical, vocational and academic nature and both University and Apprenticeship options.

You can download our Careers and Education Guidance Policy and also our policy on Access for Careers Providers Policy from our Teaching and Learning page.
