Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

A young person’s career is their pathway through learning and work.  All young people need a planned programme of activities to help them make post-16 choices that are right for them and to be able to manage their careers throughout their lives.

At High Tunstall College of Science we aim to prepare our students with the essential knowledge, skills and attributes and make sure they make the most of changing opportunities in learning and work.  It is vital that students make informed decisions about their and post-16 routes whilst becoming independent.  At High Tunstall we provide careers education from Year 7 through to Year 11 and give students access to information, advice and guidance that is relevant to all possible routes!

The college measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme by looking into figures from the Local Authority that outline the percentages of students who go on to further and higher education. Hartlepool overall have shown strong figures in the area, being one of the lowest for NEET (not in education, employment or training) figures and  ‘not known’ figures. Cumulatively this meant that Hartlepool were first overall. In comparison to other schools in the area, figures show that High Tunstall is doing very well.
