Welcome to the Careers Department

At The Holy Family Catholic School we are committed to delivering a valuable careers programme to all our students as soon as they begin their Secondary education. Our annual whole school Careers Fair is attended by a wide range of providers and brings together students, parents and Governors to provide a comprehensive and exciting opportunity to research future pathways. This is enhanced by a number of STEM events, encounters with employers and encounters with further/higher education institutions for different year groups which are held throughout the year.
