As a school we are committed to supporting our students in reaching their full potential and ensuring they have all the information, advice and guidance in order to be able to do so. Students make better decisions when they understand the options available for making informed choices about their future learning and career pathways.
As part of our careers and work related curriculum students will be given the opportunity to attend a variety of careers and employability based informational events through their subject teachers.
Year 11 students are invited to attend an independent careers interview with Amanda Cassidy the independent Careers and Employability adviser from Hampshire Futures assigned one day a week to The Hamble School. The careers interview can be an excellent opportunity for not only your son/daughter to learn about the main providers of post-16 opportunities, but also for parents to enhance their understanding of what is available to their son/daughter after they leave The Hamble School. Therefore, parents are very welcome to attend their son/daughter’s careers interview. Please be aware, however, that these take place throughout the school day and we may not be able to guarantee a requested time.
