Careers Education and Employability

The Lindfield School views learners’ career development as an integral part of their education which includes:

  • 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.
  • coping with choices and changes, and where possible, making informed decisions.
  • opportunities to consolidate and generalise skills to a range of contexts in the community
  • opportunities to gain relevant accreditation in preparation for work and employability

The Lindfield School first achieved the Quality in Careers Standard through Investors in Careers in April 2013. We have continued to renew the award every three years, most recently in May 2023.
