Marvet McAnuff – Independent Careers Advisor
The Careers Education Programme at Heartlands Academy is complemented by one-to-one careers advice and guidance from Marvet McAnuff, Independent Careers Adviser. Students in Years 8 – 11 have access to impartial one-to-one advice from Marvet every Tuesday. This can be facilitated through appointments or lunchtime drop-ins for quick careers queries. Marvet’s experience in this field means that students have the opportunity to explore a range of possible future pathways, including both college, apprenticeships and higher-level apprenticeships. If requested, Marvet will also engage with parents and carers to best support the child in their next steps.
Further to independent careers advice appointments, Marvet also supports the academy in a wider capacity with events such as Kudos (Year 8) and provides opportunities for providers of technical education and apprenticeship teams to access students in Years 8 to 11.
