Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Central Office
















Ms Waheed is a Careers Adviser appointed by the Harris Federation to work with students on career planning. She is one of a team of Careers Advisers working across all the Federation schools. She provides bespoke careers advice and guidance as well as working within the school to develop the careers education programme across all years.

There are many issues that often crop up in interviews, such as students readying themselves for the job market, students looking at University, students considering Apprenticeships or even self-employment? Often students aren’t sure what further learning they will need to be able to do a particular career, many students are really confused over what type of career would even suit them? These, and many other issues, form the basis of careers guidance in the Chafford Hundred Academy.

Students are reminded about their interviews on the day by Ms Emerson & their tutors and are expected to be there on time. Naturally, from time-to-time things crop up; exams, assessments, sickness etc. that are largely unavoidable, this being the case any interview affected will be re-scheduled.

Ms Waheed is available in the school for one day a week, usually Tuesdays. During this time she will see as many students as possible, sometimes this is 1:1 meetings, sometimes group interviews or presentations. If you want to get in touch with her then please either email her directly at or go through Ms Emerson, Mr Beal or your tutor, who will pass any message on.

Where to go next

As times change then so does the need to reflect and deliver important careers information in the most useable and appropriate manner and format.  For many young people - and adults alike- that format is the internet. It is accessible almost anywhere and, as long as it is suitably maintained, is pretty reliable on the whole.

The websites shown herein generally fall into that category and are entirely suitable for use by, and for, young people. If some of them seem confusing – and some are! – please come and see the Careers Adviser.

Every single website shown here is free and there are no charges whatsoever.

  • this is the national site for almost all Apprenticeship applications nationwide. You will need to register an account with them (it’s free!) but then you can search and apply for apprenticeships that you fancy doing?

  • Great site for finding out where the local learning opportunities for post-16 are. Search by course, subject or even provider? So, you could use it to find out if a particular college offered a particular A Level or BTEC, or just look for where the nearest learning provider is that does the course you want?

  • Lots of useful information, plenty of careers information, including how to choose careers by using some of the on-line inventories available. Also points you to on-line help and call centres for careers guidance.

  • Really user-friendly site, the ‘Buzz’ test is especially fun to do and might help reinforce career planning or help you think in a different direction? Great video clips and other careers tools to help young people decide.

  • Great site for video’s. Lots and lots of people talking about their careers, what brought them into it and what the job is really like? You just choose the career area you’re thinking of and then choose who you would like to listen to, very inspirational (and, mercifully, the videos are short!)

  • As it says, if you’re not thinking about University after Level 3 qualifications then take a look at this site. Not only is it packed with advice about opportunities but it also carries live vacancies. Not all the vacancies or opportunities will be in your locality, so you have to decide what to do at that point.

  • The National Careers Service website provides careers advice and information on a wide range of jobs, training courses, resources and funding. There is a CV builder and profiles on almost 800 different types of jobs.

  • Search online for current apprenticeship vacancies with a link to online applications.

  • There are 350 careers in the NHS. Use this website to watch videos, read case studies and learn more about the largest UK employer with over 1.3 million employees.


Lots of career areas have sites that belong to their industry bodies, for example, if you wanted to find out more about careers in Psychology then go to if it was Law, then go to, if it was health or medicine careers then look no further than or Teaching at, Journalism, simple, try

Whatever the career, the truth is there’s really no excuse for not being able to find out more information, providing you can access the internet and use a little bit of common sense!
