Staff that can help:
Our careers advisor at Halesbury School is Natasha Harris.
She has worked at Halesbury School for 7 years and has always worked closely with Year 11 in supporting them with their transitions to their next destination. In addition, Natasha has been responsible for organising, monitoring and developing the work experience programme, which can now be done onsite, offsite or virtually. Natasha is currently undertaking a Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development and is a registered member of the Career Development Institute, which demonstrates a commitment to ethical practice and impartiality.
Natasha also works closely with our Connexions Adviser to ensure that our students gain the advice, information and guidance they are entitled to from Connexions.
As a Careers Adviser she can help young people to think about their career goals and the steps they need to take to achieve them. She will talk to pupils about their career ideas and the different routes and options open to them. Natasha will also help with making applications, writing a CV, interview preparation or whatever support pupils may need in their transition from Halesbury. She can also introduce pupils to other services that may help.
