Careers Information, Advice and Guidance


The Connected Hub provides a relevant and engaging careers curriculum which meets the differing needs and requirements of our students. This is developed throughout the year that a student is with us, and is always supportive of their abilities, strengths and skills.

Aims and purpose

  • Prepare students for the transition to life after The Connected Hub
  • Support students in making informed decisions which are appropriate for them
  • Provide students with well-rounded experiences
  • Develop personal characteristics such as social skills, communication, independence and resilience
  • Inspire and motivate students to develop themselves as individuals

Our Careers policy summarises the statutory guidance and recommendations. It then outlines the provision of careers education, work experience and provider access. Please ask if you would like to see a copy of our policy.

Statutory requirements and recommendations  

The careers provision at The Connected Hub is in line with the statutory guidance developed by the Department for Education, which refers to Section 42A and 45A of the Education Act 1997.

This states that all schools should provide independent careers guidance from Years 8 -13 and that this guidance should:

  • be impartial
  • include information on a range of pathways, including apprenticeships
  • be adapted to the needs of the pupil

In addition, the school is compliant with the careers guidance that the government set out for delivery from 5 January 2018: ‘Careers Guidance and Inspiration for young people in schools.’ This states that all schools must give education and training providers the opportunity to talk to students about approved technical qualifications and apprenticeships.
