The Haverstock Career Network
A local authority-run Camden secondary comprehensive, Haverstock School has a diverse, dynamic, and often socioeconomically disadvantaged pupil intake. Over 40 different languages are spoken and 70%+ of our pupils come from households where the average total annual income is £17,000.
The Haverstock Career Network (HCN) is a programme run in the school’s sixth form, designed to give students a full immersion into the world of work through a variety of meaningful opportunities.
Since 2006 more than 350 students have graduated from the HCN, with 98% of these going on to university, education or employment. Supported by more than 100 industry-leading business partners and with 3 tailored streams – Business and Finance, Arts & Media, and STEM – the HCN caters to the diverse career interests of our 6th form students, in compliment to their studies.
In partnership with award-winning national charity Career Ready, the HCN delivers a 2-year programme of a structured calendar of events, workplace visits, professional skills development workshops, masterclasses and guru lectures presented by industry specialists. Every HCN student is also matched with a 1:1 mentor, undertakes a 4-6 week paid summer internship with one of our corporate partners, and receives a suit to wear to professional engagements and on internship.
As the only Camden school offering the Career Ready PLUS programme – and the flagship provider of Career Ready from 400 schools and colleges across the UK – the Haverstock Career Network is a shining example of the potential successes of business-education partnerships; offering a wealth of opportunities to help our students broaden their horizons, inspire their forward planning and realise their potential.
