Careers

Here at Hull Trinity Academy we are committed to ensuring all of our students receive inspiring,
independent and impartial careers guidance. Students take part in a holistic education whereby
they will have access to excellent academic opportunities and at the same time they will be fully
prepared for work and life.

Here is what a Year of Career at Hull Trinity House Academy looks like. This calendar outlines the programme of study that will fully equip our students to make informed decisions and secure excellent future career and educational opportunities. During the year students will use online careers resources to access independent, impartial information and advice about all of the careers and education opportunities available to them. Hull Trinity House students will be encouraged to take ownership of building up their education profile and eventually a CV. Students will take part in a diverse enrichment programme and will also have access to a qualified guidance professional at key stages of their education and at any time they feel they need further support via the online guidance service where they can send a message to the advisor and receive a personalised response.
