At Harris Academy South Norwood we understand that all young students need to prepare themselves for progression through learning and education into adulthood. In an Academy that specialises in Business & Enterprise we will prepare students for life after school along with progression routes Post 16 Further Education to 6th Form or College & Post 18 Higher Education to University, Apprenticeships or the world of work. There are many opportunities and experiences they will gain in the process into the world of work. Life skills, skills for life.

Harris Academy South Norwood is committed to providing a planned programme of activities, Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) for all students’ years 7-18, regardless of students’ culture and ethnicity, background or ability. All students will benefit from the planned events and activities to help them make informed decisions in preparation for life, work and as responsible adults, making a valuable contribution to society and their communities.

These activities and events will be unbiased, impartial and based on the individual needs of each student. We will aim to provide a varied programme that meets individuals’ needs working in partnership with our Federation Careers Advisor, parents, carers and teachers. Harris Academy South Norwood will consult with students and involve them in the planning, implementation and monitoring of the programme.

Through the Curriculum at Harris Academy South Norwood the CEIAG & WRL programme is provided and delivered to specific year groups through a number of different methods: in Enterprise & Business to all years, through assemblies, Tutor Time activities, themed Innovation Days, 1-1 interviews with SEND/EAL students, KUDOS a web based careers programme and working with employers through work shops. Students will also be advised and encouraged to undertake an element of independent research into all aspects of “Looking Ahead”

In September Year 11 will be focusing on the “Looking Ahead” process in preparation for study Post 16, through a number of briefings and assemblies to students and parents. Resources relevant to the moving on process including the Croydon booklet, prospectuses from other 6th Forms & Colleges, encouragement, support and impartial advice are all obtainable from the Careers Information and Advice Room M025 in the Atrium. Year 11 students will have the opportunity of having either a 1-1 or group meeting with the Federation Careers Advisor Ms Jenny Daykin. There will also be the opportunity of attending the Federation Next Steps careers event held in March.

Year 10 will be preparing for a two week Work Experience placement in July of the following year. A whole year of events are planned and delivered by the Careers Information. Life skills such as creating a CV and compiling a letter of application when applying for a work experience placement.  A number of briefings and assemblies will support students through the year focusing on employability skills, money wise and Health & Safety in the work place.
