We are committed to empower our students to make well-informed aspirational choices about their future.  Each student will receive quality, impartial careers advice and guidance, structured throughout their time at CHS.

START Profile

From Year 7 onwards we encourage all students to sign up for a Start Profile. This online free career planning tool helps young people to look into the world of work and understand the skills they will need for their future career plans.   There are modules to work through, including personal development, CV building, interview skills and job profile videos.  Plus gain an insight on education options post 16 and what jobs will be available locally in the future.  Contact Ms Parr for login details.
