Careers in the Curriculum
Careers Education is delivered through a planned programme of PSHE lessons or via off-timetable days. In Year 7 students explore Careers in a module also introducing the concept of economic wellbeing, researching different jobs using Job Explorer Database software. In Years 8 and 9 students continue expanding their knowledge of the World of Work and the importance of making the right choices. They also have access to START Software enabling further research of opportunities available.
Students in each year group complete a short questionnaire to assess their awareness of Careers and this information can then be used to highlight students that may need additional support in working towards their aspirations. Students can be referred to the Careers Adviser by their Year Manager or Form Tutor as necessary.
