The major careers event for students in Year 8 is the Employer Engagement Day during Activities Week. This event sees a number of employers visit the school and share their career experiences with students and provide advice on how to get into different areas of work. Alumni are always popular at this event and in 2019 we will have a returning student from Rolls Royce talking about her careers journey since leaving NHGS.
All pupils at NHGS receive regular careers information and direction from their form tutors during conversation in form time. All students at NHGS receive up to date information on the local labour market through an assembly delivered by the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership.
There are lots of extra-curricular activities that allow students to develop their careers and enterprise knowledge and skills in year 8. These include the CAD and CAM Club, creative writing, debating and sewing bee.
