Career pathways

The Career Pathways are a broader aspect of our provision which give you a detailed insight into career specialisms, including keynote lectures from experts along with work experience opportunities. The Career Pathways are supported by leading organisations and Harrogate Grammar School Alumni who are bringing forward their expertise to make the Career Pathways relevant to the professional world.

Career Pathways are intended to improve career awareness and employability. Being involved in the Career Pathway indicates to Higher Education Admissions’ staff or employers a commitment to a particular field and provides a wider understanding of the practical applications of subjects.
