Our Careers Motto is: Aspire. Acquire. Achieve.Careers logo 2

Should there be a relevant link to careers in the curriculum, the HASU Careers logo will be visible in lessons. During the academic year, students will also have dedicated time to Careers in their Citizenship lessons which will feature this logo.

Our Vision & Programme

Careers vision

Every year group has a careers focus which is embedded through a variety of strategies and in collaboration with  a wide range of external stakeholders. We are motivated to ensure students are able to make informed decisions at key transition points; to foster their passion for their favourite subjects and increase their awareness of the career pathways it can lead to as well as educating students on the variety of further learning pathways and supporting them to select the most appropriate to their needs.


HASU Careers Programme

Careers education, information, advice and guidance at HASU 

We teach careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) through a variety of methods at the Academy for example: 

  1. Delivering drop down days solely focusing on careers through the IID Day Programme 

  1. Delivering careers focused assemblies  

  1. Explicitly teaching about careers in the Citizenship strand of our Personal Development Curriculum 

  1. Linking careers to our Enrichment Programme for example, the Medical society explore a wide range of careers within the NHS 

  1. By making explicit links, which includes Labour Market Information, between the content being taught in the different subject areas of the curriculum to careers 

  1. Including links to careers in our Educational Visits for example all of Year 7 go to the theatre to watch a Pantomime and study stage craft in the summer term, exploring different careers in the theatre 

  1. Ensuring students have encounters with employers 

  1. Organising encounters for students with other educational institutions  

  1. Ensuring Year 10 students explore the world of work through Work Experience in the summer term 

  1. Ensuring students have focused and meaningful meetings with the Careers Adviser 

  1. Setting students assignments to engage with Unifrog to ensure they remain engaged with careers information  

Careers Experiences Image


Unifrog is a careers platform that is used at the academy. All pupils have their own account to record a host of careers related activities for example:

  • Encounters with employers
  • Meetings with the Careers AdviserUnifrog logo
  • Recording their skills
  • Visits to other education providers
  • Recording work experience placement

Unifrog can be found here.

Assessing Impact

Once the Citizenship lessons on Careers have been completed in the spring term, students are set a quiz via Satchel One to test their knowledge and understanding. This allows us to have confidence in students' understanding. We also use data from Unifrog and Compass Plus to review our Careers Programme to ensure we provide our students with brilliant CEIAG.

Working towards the Quality in Careers Standard

We are proud to be working towards the Quality in Careers Standard which is a national accreditation awarded for the quality of:

  1. Careers education960dequalityincareers
  2. Careers information
  3. Careers advice
  4. Careers guidance

These components are aligned with a set of eight criteria referred to as the Gatsby Benchmarks; that are a gold standard for CEIAG in secondary schools. We aim to have achieved this prestigious Award by the end of the 2022-23 academic year.  

Labour Market Information

We encourage all students to regularly access the most up to date information about careers and pathways. Below, students can find a brilliant tool from 'LMI For All' that helps them to investigate information about a wide range of careers.

The Skillsometer

The Skillsometer has been designed for those who are not sure what jobs they may be interested in. Thinking about skills, interests and the ways these can link to jobs can be a helpful first step in identifying possible future jobs. The widget below allows students to take this quiz whenever they might wish.


Working with visitors, external agencies and our community

As an academy at the heart of its community we endeavour to have everyone on board with this journey, from staff, students, parents/carers, enterprise coordinator, local employers to further and higher education providers.

In line with the latest update in September 2022, in the Careers guidance and access for education and training providers published by the Department of Education and the Gatsby Benchmarks we welcome external organisations, employers, employees, Further Education providers, Higher Education providers and training providers to contribute towards our Careers Programme. Please contact the Academy’s Careers Leader, Mrs Alysia Haughton-Nicholls, Associate Assistant Principal, via email ( or phone (020 3962 4500).

Requests will be considered in line with our safeguarding policy.
