Career And Further Education
Career Education at Harris Academy Morden
The Academy Careers provision is designed to support students to help them make appropriate choices about their future.
Students are provided with a range of activities through the PSHE / SMSC programme of assemblies, full days and external visitors to help make decisions about whom they wish to become and more importantly, what they need to do to achieve these goals or aspirations.
To support the curriculum and pastoral careers education, a Careers Advisor is contracted to HAMD from Federation. They currently work on Friday and are based in the careers room.
Evaluation and individual careers plans are constructed as a result of the interviews and kept on file for future interviews.
To further support students there are visits to Universities as well as focused assemblies or events for GCSE Options or Post 16 pathways.
In January 2018 the DFE have produced further statutory guidance for schools. This is to be implemented over a two year period between 2018 and 2020.
The Academy will work with the Harris Federation Careers team to develop our Careers Education to ensure all statutory requirements are met and exceeded.
Interested parties wishing to work with the Academy and present vital information about careers, pathways or apprenticeships should follow the link to the Harris Academy Morden Provider Access Policy
