Careers Overview

Welcome to our Hundred of Hoo Academy Careers hub.

We believe that careers education and guidance is critical to our young people’s futures. It helps to prepare them for the workplace by providing a clear
understanding of the world of work, including the routes to jobs and careers that they
might find engaging and rewarding. It supports them to acquire the self-development and
career management skills they need to achieve positive employment destinations. Perhaps most importantly, it helps students to choose their pathways, improve their life opportunities and contribute to a productive and successful economy. In short, our careers programme is central to our Aspire, Achieve, Excel philosophy.

We work closely with students, parents, colleges, apprenticeship providers, sixth forms, universities and employers to ensure our students and their parents/carers identify and secure their best possible future.

By browsing the links under the Careers sidebar, you will find a breakdown of our programme here at Hoo, along with links to some resources that we believe can benefit our students and their families as they navigate these decisions, wherever you are up to on your careers journey.
