Careers

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is embedded within our PSHE education, individual subject curriculum and also within the culture of education within the academy. We recognise the important contribution CEIAG makes to supporting the successful transition from education to employment.  

CEIAG involves internal and external events, experiences and visits. You can download our careers policy and request for access document from our Teaching and Learning page. You can also read more about careers events for students in latest news.


Our careers lead

Mrs E. Campbell, our Assistant Principal in charge of Careers and PSHE in the Academy, organises the careers opportunities at HGAED. Students can find her in the Assistant Principal’s office or around the academy while on duty (before school or during break, lunch and/or after school).

Alternatively, Mrs Campbell can be contacted by email on E.Beckles@harrisdulwichgirls.org.uk or by calling 0207 732 2276 ext: 7911. You can also contact the academy directly by emailing info@harrisdulwichgirls.org.uk.

We also benefit from a careers advisor from the central Harris Federation team who works every Friday at HGAED. Our advisor Miss Gnade Gahoua meets for one-to-one scheduled meetings each week with years 11-13 students on a rota and the younger years during the spring and summer terms. Her contact details are: Gnade.Gahoua@harrisfederation.org.uk.


More about Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at our academy. 

C – Careers, E - Education

Students have careers education from Year 7 delivered in their PSHE lessons during coaching time (30 minutes, twice a week) in addition to drop down days, workplace visits and dedicated assemblies throughout the academic year. Each student is provided with a UNIFROG account to track their careers’ education and find opportunities, resources and advice.

Year 10 and Year 12 students take part in a week long quality work experience placement to gain key skills and support their future pathways choices.

Post-16 students have their own bespoke provision, coordinated by Sixth Form team and delivered by their coaches. Activities involve work experience, talks, course application support, UCAS support, CV writing and many other events. The academy works with local universities and business partners to ensure wide-ranging provision.


I - Information

Students have access to a wide selection of free online resources via their UNIFROG accounts and during PSHE and assemblies/ topics.


A - Advice

All staff can offer support, but specific advice can be accessed via the Sixth Form staff, Careers Advisor (Gnade Gahoua) and the Assistant Principal for Careers and PSHE (Mrs E. Campbell).

To contact Mrs Campbell (Assistant Principal: Careers and PSHE Lead) with a question or to arrange a meeting email E.Beckles@harrisdulwichgirls.org.uk or call 0207 732 2276 Ext: 7911.


G - Guidance

Individual careers guidance interviews are available from our dedicated careers advisor from the Harris Federation central team Gnade Gahoua, email Gnade.Gahoua@harrisfederation.org.uk
