The Piper Library has a well-stocked careers section containing relevant literature and pupils are encouraged and supported to obtain work experience, with the help and guidance of the School. Pupils have Careers lessons as part of the PSHRE programme. Fifth Form pupils take the Morrisby Careers guidance test; pupils then have an individual interview with a careers advisor to ensure they choose A Level subjects relevant to possible future degree courses and careers.
The School offers detailed careers advice and specialist evenings are organised to inform the career choices made by pupils. This year, we have hosted panel discussions on careers in finance and digital media, which have enabled pupils to ask questions and network with a range of experts. Pupils have also attended talks on the not for profit sector and taken part in a workshop on how to successfully gain work experience. A number of pupils are completing work placements, through school contacts, over the summer holidays.
A Careers Team, comprised of pupils, will be in place early next year and various events are planned to take place throughout the next academic year.
The School organises a Careers and Gap Year Fair biennially; The Mill Hill School Careers Fair will take place on Thursday 15th March 2018 and is open to all pupils.
