ckcareersMy name is Sara Cookney and I am the Careers Adviser working in Salendine Nook High School.

I work with students in Years 8 -11 providing career-related and impartial information, advice and guidance.  I can help with career planning and signpost students to a range of support services for young people.

In school, I work mainly with Year 11 students; helping to make sure they are aware of all their post 16 options and supporting them with their career plans.  
We offer at least one individual or small group appointment, either in Year 10 and/or Year 11.
Appointment cards are either handed out in registration or forwarded via registers; however, self-referrals are welcome, so please let me know if you would like an earlier appointment or if you feel you would benefit from a second interview.

In careers I appreciate some students will need more help and support than others to make a successful transition on leaving Year 11. I therefore work very closely in school with the SEN staff, Learning Mentors and Heads of Year to help to offer appropriate support to students. Our experience in careers has also helped us form good working relationships with external agencies who we can call on to offer advice and support if required.

In school we offer a drop-in service for any student at break or lunch where they can come along to request an appointment or ask a quick question. There is someone in Careers in HF8 from Tuesday - Thursday.
If parents/carers wish to attend careers meetings or have any questions, please do not hesitate to phone me in school or use the email address below.
I also provide advice and guidance for students and their families at various key events through the school year such as parent’s evenings and Year 8 GCSE Options Evening.

Occasionally I may come into PSHCE lessons or assemblies to talk about career topics such as the qualifications on offer post 16, the advantages of reaching your potential and attending school regularly and also option choices in Year 8.

Our service continues at college and beyond as C&K Careers offers lifelong careers advice for young people and adults through our centres in Huddersfield, Halifax and Dewsbury and other provision in the community.

If you have any questions or can’t find what you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to pop along and see me or contact us via e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
