All students are entitled to careers education that is impartial and confidential. It will be integrated into their experience of the whole curriculum, based upon a partnership with students and their parents/carers. The programme will promote equality of opportunity and inclusion.
My role is to ensure that students receive careers education throughout each of their years at Hautlieu School.
Throughout each year students will receive guidance and input from Skills Jersey. They provide professional support to students about the next steps in their post 16 education and post 18 careers.
For students in years 12 and 13, employers regularly get in touch with me throughout the year about opportunities they have for school leavers and I email these to students.
Skills Jersey can provide guidance on writing covering letters and CVs. In addition, Aztec Group provide professional insight into tips for writing a standout CV.
One of my main areas of support is to help students applying to university. I provide information to parents and students about the support they receive in school. This ranges from the fundamental information of knowing about What is university? and What is a degree? To the more challenging part of the application which is how to write a personal statement in which students need to sell themselves and their interest in the subject they wish to study. I provide personal statement examples so they have a better understanding of what they are trying to achieve.
UCAS is the admissions system that students use to apply to university. The UCAS website provides a huge amount of information on choosing a course, university and more information on writing a personal statement. It also has the important key dates when applying for certain courses (such as medicine), particular universities or music conservatoires.
