Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Student Careers Information, Advice & Guidance

At Harris City Academy Crystal Palace we understand that all students need to prepare themselves for progression through learning and education into adulthood. We aim to prepare students for life after school along with providing information on occupations and progression routes to sixth form, college, university or work/apprenticeships, as appropriate.

We are committed to providing a varied programme of activities for all students from Year 7 to 13 and beyond. Various careers related opportunities are provided via a number of different methods such as assemblies, tutor time programme, thematic days, careers interviews, career based interest guides and websites, trips to employers and universities, visiting speakers and work experience. Our students also benefit from attending careers fairs, having direct support with university/sixth form applications, student finance, CV advice, and we offer particular support for SEND students.  The focus is to provide activities and events that meet the needs of the individual students and thus will incorporate independent and impartial careers guidance to support career and option choices, raising the aspirations of individual students and equipping them with the necessary skills, attitudes, knowledge and understanding. We ensure that the programme follows local, regional and national  frameworks for good practice and are committed to maintaining our Investor in Careers quality award status for which the Academy was assessed for and once again received re-accreditation in March 2015.

The careers team, consisting of a qualified Careers Adviser and also a Work Experience Assistant, are both available to support students on a daily basis either during drop in sessions or also for booked appointments. Please feel free to get in contact if you require any information, advice or guidance. We also recognise that parents/carers come from many different work backgrounds and can also contribute to helping our students make informed decisions. Therefore, if you are able to offer some time to deliver an occupational talk, host a stand at our annual careers fair, or are able to take a student for a work experience placement we would really welcome you contacting us via the 'Info' email address on the Academy website.
