Careers & Employability

At Daventry Hill School, we aim to develop happy, successful adults. We are passionate about supporting our young people towards preparation for adulthood, and we believe that a large percentage of our student cohort will be employable.

Core Competency skills are incorporated across the curriculum through the Skills Builder programme to promote and develop individuals in preparation for whatever pathway they are on. These are skills not only for life, but for employment.

The main areas of focus are:

Daventry Hill School has developed a work related learning and employability programme to incorporate the Government’s Career Strategy launched in December 2018 and the statutory guidance published in January 2018 setting out a range of requirements for secondary and colleges.

Louise Worts is the Careers & Employability Leader and is responsible for leading the CEIAG at Daventry Hill School.

We are proud to be part of the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) and are able to liaise with a wide range of businesses in both commerce and industry because of this joint venture. Using expertise from a variety of organisations allows Daventry Hill School to inspire and motivate students as they make decisions for Post 16, world of work or lifestyle choices. We offer impartial advice to ensure our young people receive the best possible outcomes suited to the individual’s needs.

We welcome visitors to our school, to meet our young people. Research has publicised that students benefit greatly from employer engagement; this can be done in an array of ways:

  • Speak – share your career story with a class or assembly
  • Share – run a group session about your industry
  • Workshop – carry out a mock interview or support with CV development
  • Networking – answer questions about your career
  • Activities – get you and your staff involved
  • Workplace visits – provide real insights into the world of work
  • Work experience – to suit the needs of your business
  • Business games and enterprise competitions – help to develop employability and key competencies

This is an exciting opportunity for all stakeholders involved, staff, students, families, local organisations and members of the community. We are very flexible in the way that we work, so if you think you can support us, we would love to hear from you.

We have incredible young people here at Daventry Hill School, and we would love to show that:

Differences are Strengths

Disabilities are Different Abilities

Special Needs are Special Talents

Please check back regularly, to see the amazing work our young people are doing.

We are pleased to welcome James How as our link governor for employability and careers.
