Parents & Carers
Careers advice is not just for our students. As Parents/Carers you play a vital role in supporting our young people with their next steps and therefore need to be equipped with the most up to date and relevant careers and *labour market information (LMI). Having this careers knowledge will allow you to help our young people to make tough and challenging decisions about their futures.
MHS careers programme - the current careers programme overview for all year groups can be accessed via the link on the careers homepage.
As new activities and events are advertised and planned the programme will be updated.
Advice and Guidance
We do have an impartial Connexions career advisor in school if you or your child would like more information about careers and possible future pathways – appointments can be made by contacting Angela Towes (email@example.com) or 0191 297 9700.
Labour Market Information (LMI)
LMI refers to the data we have about jobs and industries that helps us understand the economy. It provides an overview of growth areas in industry and patterns relating to employment, salaries and much much more. LMI information is available at a national, regional and local level.
Our region is home to a huge variety of businesses and organisations, which means young people have a lot of choice when it comes to their career path. So how do you know where to begin? There are certain areas of industry where the North East performs strongly, and which the North East Local Enterprise Partnership believe are likely to grow in the future, based on what we know at the moment.

Destinations 2021 - Despite a very difficult and disrupted two years for our students due to COVID and school closures they have went on to some fantastic destinations.
