Careers and Enterprise
At Horizon Community College we have an invaluable department; Careers and Enterprise. Within this department we feel passionately about working very closely with our community, fellow educators and local businesses. These links extend to our partner Primary Schools, Charities, Colleges and Universities, and of course, our Parents and Carers.
We strive to continue our forward and outward thinking ethos by continually building new relationships and by working together to make a real difference, making a positive impact on our young people and the wider community. We recognise that Horizon plays a crucial role in developing our students and therefore improving the future of Barnsley. That is why the department continually encourages students to foster a proactive attitude towards their overall development; including their intra and interpersonal skills, their career development and their understanding of their wider social responsibilities.
Whether our students are supporting primary children with literacy and numeracy, coaching sports teams, completing a CV, practising interview techniques or taking part in nationally recognised competitions, Horizon students are encouraged to develop their all-important soft skills; communication, leadership and entrepreneurship – all fundamental abilities that employers seek today.
