Mrs Davies




The Hereford Academy has fun-filled careers programme in place and all of our students participate in a lot of career based learning, events and activities throughout their time at the Academy.  However, sometimes it is easy to forget what we may do, as some careers related learning may not be easily related to ‘Careers’.  Therefore, here is a poster to remind ourselves of all the fantastic things that we do !



√ Career based Assemblies aimed at all year groups, but one a week during the autumn term for year 11 students.

√ Regular visitors coming in – This could be in the subject classes to embed careers into the lessons (eg STEM) or to carry out career based workshops.

√ Work Related Learning in PHSE lessons for ALL year groups.  These sessions are taught in an age appropriate manner.

√ Work Experience for year 10 students

√ Mock Interviews for year 11 students

√ School trips : Gloucester, Barry Island, West Midlands Safari Park, Barcelona, Netball World Cup Trip, Science Museum London, Worcester University etc.

√ Specific subject based workshops

√ Option Evenings

Where Can I Find Careers Information?

Who Can I Go To?

Guidance for Post 16

Literacy Trust


The Literacy Trust has put together loads of advice for KS4 aged students suggesting what to think about when looking to apply for jobs and starting out on careers.  


It has cover letters/CVs/job interviews/volunteering/career podcasts/employability checklist and much much more.


Take a look below!


Useful Websites for Careers Information


  1. This has good, detailed job information sheets on it.  It is accessed by using the school postcode as a login which must be typed in capitals e.g. for Fairfield High School use FAIR0SG. (You can access this in school and at home). Also, information on Option Choices.

  2. This is free to use and has good video clips of people in different industries talking about what their job is really like. You could also try the BUZZ QUIZ to give you ideas.

  3. This is largely aimed at adults but has some good information in their Job Profiles section.

  4. Use this to look for apprenticeship vacancies, both locally and nationally, and apply online. Check application deadlines – apprenticeships are advertised all year round for ages 16-60.

  5. The university application site. This is useful to see the range of degrees on offer and to check ‘entry requirements’ which could impact on ‘A’ level choices.

  6. You can use this to find a wide variety of career opportunities within the National Health Service. 

  7. This link might be useful for those students going on to further education and has useful tips when applying for jobs.

Hereford & Ludlow College have Chef Apprenticeship vacancies.  Please make your enquiries direct to the college.
