Careers education, information, advice and guidance

Introduction

The central aim of Harris City Academy Crystal Palace is to provide effective education and training for all of our students. Through a well-structured and highly effective programme of CEIAG we believe that all can achieve both in school and in adult life. By working in partnership with external agencies, businesses and members of our community we will provide accurate and focussed careers information, advice and guidance tailored to the individual needs of our students, and thereby enable all of our students to make informed choices about their career pathways.

For more detailed information about our careers education programme, including opportunities available for students in all year groups, please refer to our Careers education programme attached at the bottom of the page.

Harris City Academy Crystal Palace is proud to be recognised as a Quality in Careers Standard school, accredited through Investor in Careers, and we are committed to maintaining our accreditation. We were pleased to be reaccredited for the second time in January 2019, reaffirming the continued high quality Careers education, information, advice and guidance on offer at the Academy.
