Careers Advice

‘If you do not know your goal, you do not know where to aim’

Careers’ education at Holy Family is continually developing because we know the world of work is continually developing too. There are so many careers out there and it is one of our missions to make your son/daughter aware of these options. Whether the young person wants to be an electrician, fire fighter, web designer or even an airline pilot, it is our task to research the best way for your son/daughter to access these professions.

We offer a stable and comprehensive careers’ programme which seeks to educate every student from Year 7 to Year 13. Working closely with the charity ‘Believe in Young People’ your son/daughter will be given a personal log in to access the daunting, but exciting world of work from the classroom, or from the comfort of their own homes. We have an award achieving STEM club that embeds careers’ education into the curriculum. Holy Family has also hosted many inspiring speakers through our commitment to the Speakers for School programme and Dame Tessa Jowels and Lord Billimoria, to name but a few, have been extremely impressed with our student body.

Our external providers are vital to our delivery of careers’ education but we also recognise that we need the support of one essential group: You; parents, carers, sisters, brothers and extended families. Therefore if you would like to share your experience of the world of work, or offer any suggestions, internships or work experience placements, please contact me: k.connolly@holyfamily.waltham.sch.uk
