Careers Education 02The Careers Department at Highams Park School is here to help students with the choices they will soon be making with regard to the future. 

Students may not know what they would like to do post-16 but this is not unusual at this age. 

Students should talk to parents, friends and teachers to discuss any thoughts they may have or visit and take the Buzz test on the site to explore career ideas – find out what you are like and what you could do!

The Careers Department is working hard to ensure that the school is providing students with the best possible careers education, information, advice and guidance during their time at the school.

Careers Office

The Careers Office is open on a Monday and Wednesday during term-time from 9.00 am – 2.00 pm.  Students are free to pop by during break or lunchtime to have a chat.  During Year 11 students will have the opportunity to meet with the Careers Adviser from the London Borough of Waltham Forest for further guidance. 

The National Careers Service provides information, advice and guidance to help you make decisions on learning, training and work.  On this site you can find out what a job involves and whether it would be right for you.  The Skills Health Check is a set of quizzes and activities designed to help you explore your skills, interests and motivations.

We are working hard to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks by 2020 as set by the Department for Education in January 2018 in their statutory guidance, which can be found here.
