Hello, my name is Claire Hurst and I work alongside my colleague Julie Kay, job sharing the role of Careers Adviser within Passmores Academy. As qualified careers advisers we provide impartial information advice and guidance (IAG) to all students empowering them to make informed choices and motivating them to plan and manage their own futures. We also have a responsibility to organise work experience for our year 10 students.
Before joining Passmores Academy in January I have had 8 years’ experience working as an IAG Consultant and Careers Adviser for the Connexions service / Essex County Council, where I gained my Post Graduate Qualification in Careers Guidance. Prior to this I have industry experience working in headhunting / recruitment and Account Management for a number of sectors.
Any students wishing to see the Careers Advisers can self-refer by either emailing us or completing a self-referral form kept in the resource centre. Parents are also welcome to contact us regarding any queries relating to information, advice and guidance or work experience, using the email link on the right of this page.
