Careers Information, Advice and Guidance 2018



Hanley Castle High School is committed to providing independent, impartial careers advice and guidance to all students during each step of their school life. We pride ourselves on guiding each student to make an informed decision about their future and will explore all available pathways to help each individual realise their potential.

To help our students make these choices, we have a dedicated programme of careers education and organise a wide range of experiences with external providers, details of which can be found here.

Careers education takes many forms at Hanley Castle, from structured lessons during PSD to interactive employer led events. Each year we have a number of exciting opportunities available to our students, including: careers fairs, mock interviews, employer events, university trips, business and enterprise schemes and much more. More information can be obtained from the Careers Calendar (available from Mr Cotgrave).
