Introduction

At Harris Academy Sutton (HASU) we endeavour to provide an outstanding careers   provision for all our students throughout their journey with us. 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.

Statutory Guidance from the Government was recently updated to ensure that all secondary school students receive excellent careers advice and guidance. To achieve this, it is best practice for the Academy to adopt the eight Gatsby Benchmarks, which is a set of criteria based on the best national and international research on careers provision.

As HASU is a new secondary school that opened in September 2018 the use of Compass (a self-evaluation tool used by educational institutions to assess their careers provision) was not applicable at this stage. The Academy is in a fantastic and unique position to firmly embed Careers from Year 7 up to Year 13. The Principal and Academy Leadership Group offer strong support to the Academy’s Careers Strategy. Furthermore, the Academy’s Career Leader, Ms Haughton-Nicholls is completing the Teach First Careers and Employability Leadership Programme (CELP) which has ensured that the development of the HASU Careers Strategy has been informed by the latest educational research to work towards achieving the Benchmarks.

HASU is a science specialist school that is fortunate to be part of the London Cancer Hub. The Academy has an established partnership with the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) which is and will continue to provide our students with amazing, unique and privileged opportunities. Furthermore, the Academy’s speciality in Science not only underpins the curriculum but also complements the Academy’s Career Programme.

The Innovation Day that took place on 4th February 2019 was a real success. We had outstanding feedback from a variety of stakeholders ranging from parents, employers and staff.

“This is just to say thank you for the Innovation Day.  My son came home from school really excited about becoming an engineer! He's a quiet boy but he talked for about an hour about all the different people that presented about the different careers, the site he was shown and all the options he is going to consider and the future he was planning. He said, I can't wait to get a really exciting job!  He was delighted. It's wonderful that the school managed to connect with him in this way and I thought I would just pass on my thanks because he was so very happy and your hard work is having a real impact for my boy.” Year 7 Parent

“It was a real pleasure to be able to help and also to see the other sessions that were going on – you had a really great variety of speakers and sessions and the pupils were clearly really enjoying it.” Programme and Careers Lead – Programme Delivery, TeachFirst

“The children’s behaviour was exemplary and they showed great interest by asking various questions on their potential future careers. Well done for taking the initiative to have early talks about life after high school.  I wasn’t shown anything until I was approaching 16 (a bit too late for most).  So, it is vital the children get an early taste. Preparation is key!” Employer who was a guest speaker
