Careers Education and Employability

Careers Education and Employability

Hazel Court School views learners’ career development as an integral part of their education.

Careers Education is:

  • a process of personal and social development which begins in the home and continues through adult life.
  • a process of constructive learning whereby learners are given opportunities, experiences, and responsibilities to equip them for their adult life.
  • about continued and constructive learning, coping with choices and changes, and where possible, making informed decisions.
  • about opportunities to consolidate and generalise skills to a range of contexts in the community
  • about opportunities to gain relevant accreditation in preparation for work and employability

Parents and Carers

We view careers education as a learner’s ‘career through life’ during which they learn essential personal development and communication skills in order for them to live full and enriching lives as active participants in the community. Each learner follows a specific learning pathway that is meaningful and relevant to them and which best prepares them for their future lives. Please read our Careers and Education policy for further information.
