Careers at Herschel: An Introduction

At Herschel, we provide a comprehensive programme of careers education plus information, advice and guidance through these website pages, our Careers Library and small group or one-to-one meetings with Helen Cole, our Careers Adviser from Adviza.

We have recently been awarded Stage 1 of the Investor in Careers award, which involves us reviewing our whole careers programme right from careers policy to individual lesson content, ensuring that we fully meet all of the statutory requirements and lots of the non-statutory ones too, evaluating the programme in the light of input from staff, students and parents.

Use the links on the left hand menu to navigate your way around our careers pages.
