Students are provided with access to good quality information about future study options and labour market opportunities. They receive the personalised support and guidance of informed careers advisers from organisations such as Connexions, Hull University and FORCE to make best use of available information.

All teachers link curriculum learning with careers. STEM subject teachers highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career paths and utilise links with local STEM organisations such as Siemans, Reckitt Benkiser, NHS and HYMS to make explicit links with the curriculum through a range of enrichment opportunities.

Every student has multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace. This is through a range of enrichment activities including visiting speakers, Mock interviews, workshops, Y9 Foundations live events and enterprise schemes.

Students in Y10 have first-hand experiences of the workplace through work experience to help their exploration of career opportunities, and expand their networks. This takes place from Monday 22th – Friday 268th June.

We provide access to the full range of learning opportunities that are available to students post 16. This  takes the form of a higher education ACE day for Y9, College visits in the summer term in Y10 along with access to the National apprenticeship show and our own YHCLT careers event for Y11 held on 3rd October 2019.
