Careers and Employability

A young person’s career is their pathway through learning and work. All young people need a planned programme of activities to help them make decisions and plan their careers, both in school and after they leave.

The school is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education, information and guidance for all students in partnership with Calderdale and Kirklees Careers Service.
