Careers Advice

Welcome to Inspirational Futures

Here at Avonbourne Trust we do things differently when it comes to Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG). Our Inspirational Futures department offers our students an energetic and motivating approach to their career ambitions.



Pippa Allner, Head of Careers & Employability is our named Careers Leader across Avonbourne Trust. She is a qualified Careers Adviser with over 10 years’ experience in the careers and education sector and is passionate about enabling our students to get the best preparation for the world of work. Inspirational Futures focuses on ensuring students are equipped with life long career management skills to enable them to tackle challenges positively within the fast changing environment of employment.

Pippa has also successfully been shortlisted by the Career Development Institute for their annual Career Development Awards, for the award of ‘Careers Leader of the Year 2019’! This category is sponsored by the Department of Education and recognises excellence in practice, innovation and contribution to the profession by an individual.

Every student is entitled to impartial careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG). We recognise that providing our students with the right opportunities will increase their aspirations and ensure they are ready for the world of work.

Careers education is delivered within PSHE lessons from years 7 to 11, but also discretely in other areas of the curriculum and through internal and external career events. Most importantly, the support offered to our students is personalised and tailored to their individual needs.

Students will leave Harewood & Avonbourne Colleges having had contact with high-quality and impartial information and guidance. This will enable them to get the most out of their learning and to enable successful progression to further education or training and to have a clearer focus on their career goals.
