At Hayle Academy, students benefit from the expert advice of an independent Careers Advisor. All students in KS4 will have a 1-to-1 meetings every Tuesday with Sharon Harrison from Careers4U and appointments can be made via Miss Wilson when they feel they need additional guidance or support. Students in KS3 can also take up this 

opportunity if they have a particular area that they would like to discuss. Students who have specific needs may also meet with advisors from Careers South-West who are able to support them in their Post-16 journey.


Talking to a careers advisor enables students to :


  • Have a 1 to 1 Interview or meet as part of a group with similar Post-16 interests
  • Share  ideas, worries, aims and ambitions
  • Get advice about of all of the options available to help make informed decisions
  • Help with making decisions to take the next steps.
  • Signpost and refer students to other people that can help.


If you would like any further information, please contact Miss Wilson (Careers Lead) at

CSW is an organisation that supports young people as they make important transitions in their lives. We do this through our network of Career Development Consultants who are all qualified career guidance practitioners. We provide targeted support to young people in education which means we have advisers linked to all schools and can provide additional help at key times including exam results days. We continue to provide support as young people take their first steps into the world of work, offering advice and guidance to ensure they are aware of the options open to them and have dedicated advisers who work with those who find themselves NEET (not in education, employment or training).

You can watch them all or as many as you like.  CSW Group can help with making choices and decision making. Please contact your school and ask to meet with us.
