Careers and IAG

All students within St Hilda’s CE high School and St Hilda’s College are provided with Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) from year 7 to year 13. All students receive at least 6 weeks lesson objectives on careers (IAG) through their weekly PSHE lesson.

Careers (IAG) at St Hilda’s CE High School works in line with the Gatsby benchmark, as this ensures that the school is providing a stable careers programme, which allows all students to learn about future study options and labour market opportunities. In addition, all students regularly meet employers from local, national and international organisations through outside visiting events such as the trade fair, employer carousel events, NCS and the Apprenticeship team.

In September 2017 St Hilda’s will embark on a new networking opportunity by working with Liverpool Chambers of Commerce which will include networking, HR support, profile on the Chamber website, access to training seminars and masterclasses. In addition, St Hilda’s will work with five businesses that we can build a relationship with and involve throughout the school year on various projects.

All year 11 students will receive a mock interview from our new partnership with Liverpool Chamber of Commerce staff and members from the local business community.

Students in St Hilda’s College will embark on a week work placement in a chosen career pathway of their choice. BTec college students must undertake work related learning as well as having regular relevant employment engagements with businesses.
