Stratford upon Avon School’s exemplar approach to Careers Advice and Guidance has had national recognition and our Careers Manager, David Wallace, has been a finalist in the National Careers Educator of the Year Award for two years in a row.
David has been selected for his visionary thinking where Careers advice is concerned and the way in which he has forged links with external careers businesses to support the curriculum within the school. David’s work has also seen links with Primary schools to enable students to broaden their thinking about future career ideas and he also works with students who have left full time education to make sure they still have the support they need.
The CareerHub project works closely with numerous businesses to provide subject Masterclasses, work placements for both students and staff and curriculum support as well as a variety of other opportunities as they develop. The school is very grateful to more than 60 businesses that have already signed up to support the CareerHub venture.
Stratford upon Avon School Home of the CAREERHUB
The CareerHub is a dedicated facility, accessible to young people, parents, teachers and employers. The ethos and activities within the CareerHub bring together students and employers, to ensure the skills needed by businesses in and around the county are met and that businesses are able to provide more job opportunities for young people.
The CareerHub was launched at Stratford upon Avon School with the support of local businesses, charities and educational establishments.
The CareerHub continues to bring educators, students and employers together for mutual benefit.
Stratford upon Avon School is also proud to be among the first to be awarded this charter for their commitment to improving the employability skills and careers education of students and staff.
