Across our varied curriculum, students will have the opportunity to participate in activities that use the context of work to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding that will be useful in any future workplace. Furthermore, subject teachers will inform students about how learning in the classroom relates to the world of work and future careers.
Students will be provided with opportunities to:
Learn through work, from direct involvement in, for example, work experience placement and enterprise activities
Learn about work, by developing knowledge and understanding through careers education
Learn for work by demonstrating skills for employability in different problem-solving activities, work simulations and mock interviews.
The programme includes:
Information, advice and guidance on careers from a variety of speakers, organisations and providers
Visits to local colleges & universities
Links with local employers to enable you to gain experience of mock interviews
A 2 week period of Work Experience at the end of Year 10
On - going careers advice throughout the 5 years from students' individual subject teachers. Every subject area has careers built into their curriculum
