for a place
Throughout their time at Blackheath High, students benefit from a high quality careers events. These are designed to broaden their knowledge, inspire students to understand they can follow any career path they wish; challenging their preconceptions of the world of work.
Key to the success of our careers events are the close links with business professionals that we have fostered. Over the past few years students have been fortunate enough to meet representatives from STEM related industries, as well as PR gurus, actors, corporate executives and lawyers to name but a few of the network of helpers who have made Blackheath careers events so helpful.
In addition to participating in events within school, students are also encouraged to gain invaluable work experience within the wider world. In Year 9, students take part in the “Take Your Daughter to Work” event, and in Year 11 all students complete a period of work experience during the summer term.
The Careers department was recently awarded the “Career Mark Award” for providing excellence in career provision.
