Information Advice and Guidance/Careers

At Holly Lodge we recognise the importance of Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) and therefore have always ensured it is delivered to a high standard. IAG is about making sure you have the right tools to help you make informed choices about your future learning and career pathways.

We begin to provide pupils with careers information and guidance from as early as year 7 right through to year 13. You will not only get the benefit of developing skills that will allow you to progress personally and professionally through teaching and learning from the fantastic staff at Holly Lodge, but also gain impartial advice from connexions staff as well as other external agencies.

We have many tools available for you to use at your own leisure to gain the knowledge you need to make the all-important choices from your options at year 9 to courses you will be best suited to post 16. They include a great Careers Resource Centre located in the fantastic new library; this has information on the latest changes that affect you directly, as well as the latest prospectuses from both colleges and universities. The Connexions Hub is also where you will find careers personal advisors at hand to answer any questions you have on making choices on your future, with ‘drop in’ sessions available to years 9, 10 and 11.

Careers Fair 2018

The event was a Careers fair set up for Personal Development for Year 11 – staff involved, RKA, DSO, LBU and set up with many organisations through Connexions, thanks to MRI also. The councillor Simon Hackett also attended and was really pleased with the whole set up and options available for students.

Work Experience

We have an amazing work experience programme in place that starts in year 10, all students start to plan and prepare for their year 11 placements. The students are given the responsibility of making contacts and connections with local businesses and companies. This is where our students start to become independent young men and ladies, they have to make their own phone calls, arrange interviews and sort out their travel arrangements in preparation for year 11, where they go on their weeks work experience placement.
