You are very welcome at the Pathways Hub! It is for all students at Hallam Senior College.

Careers teachers, Engagement Officers & teaching staff work with students to help them decide where they are headed after school. Each student is given assistance to understand what their interests, aptitude and skills are, the sorts of careers that they are suited to and to develop a plan of how they can get on the right pathway to get where they are headed.

 

Where is the Pathways Hub?

It is situated in the centre of the College, between the Upper and Lower Courtyards. The Pathways Hub is open to all students before school, during recess, lunchtime and after school on most days. The Curriculum Team, SWL Coordinator and Work Experience Coordinator are all situated in this building.
