Student Careers‎ > ‎


Students of Sir Herbert Leon Academy


Your teachers will work with you to help you develop the skills you need for life and employment.  You will receive information about placements and work opportunities and will meet people from the world of work, who could help you to acquire the skills needed to be successful in work.

I want to help you to realise your potential so you can do what you love when you leave school!

If you are wondering what you can do to improve your chances of being employable when you leave school here are some ideas:

If you want to know how to start deciding what to aim for in your career or working life, try asking yourself these questions:

What are you good at? 

What do you enjoy doing? 

What subjects are you good at (at school)?

What are you good at outside of school?

What are your interests?

What skills do you already have? 

What sort of a person are you?

Do you like interacting with people?

Where do you prefer to be (inside/outside)?

If you want more help answering these questions and deciding what you want to do please see me!  You’ll find me in G127 near the SVCH.

Look out for information about careers and employability events on posters around school, tutor group announcements, school email, and assemblies.
