At Headlands, we pride ourselves on giving our students a wide range of opportunities to gain the skills and knowledge to achieve everything that they want in life.
Part of this is our nationally-recognised careers programme. Students in all year groups not only have access to highly qualified and effective careers staff, they also have a vast amount of exciting and informative events on offer throughout their time with us.
We have been able to run the majority of our planned activities through the year but unfortunately we have had to cancel the following events:
Losing these events is a big shame but we have been working hard behind the scenes to still give many of these opportunities virtually’ and have created a dedicated Careers Google Classroom which will fulfil all of our students’ careers needs.
Parents and students can access the new Google Classroom using the code auz5ijv.
Here are some of the resources you can find on the new classroom.
Students can get a list of personalised career suggestions based on their likes and dislikes, or they can look up specific careers.
Information listed includes what the job is, qualifications needed for the role, routes into that job, pay and opportunities.
You can explore careers linked to specific school subject areas and there is a CV builder which will be helpful when you are making applications for the Sixth Form, college, apprenticeships and jobs.
Students may have already used Kudos during events such as the Mock Interview Day or during
tutor periods. They can sign back into their account using their previous login details.
A new account can also be set up using the license code: busyinfo17
Students can explore what subjects they would be interested in studying Post 16 and how these
choices can lead to different career paths and further education.
They can discover and sign up to online courses in areas that they are interested in and see what is needed to make a successful application to a college or Sixth Form.
Students can explore how to successfully apply to an apprenticeship or university course, including universities abroad.
They can get support in writing a CV and covering letter, plus record key activities and achievements to use in applications.
