Careers and Vocational Learning
At Hebden Green School, Careers education is about more than “getting a job”. It is about building skills for the future; for life beyond Hebden Green. Teamwork, cooperation, decision making, sourcing up to date information, communication, self esteem and confidence are all key to a successful future and our Careers programme is based upon these areas. It aims to meet the needs of the individual regardless of their aspirations and proposed pathway, allowing them appropriate and meaningful encounters with professionals and visits to places of work within the local community. It seeks to develop self awareness and communication skills at every level, from basic choice making to selecting a college course based on individual skills, strengths and preferences.
