The aim is to provide students with a greater understanding of the opportunities that are available at the end of Year 11. This is achieved by supporting students to become more self-aware and to develop their action planning skills, so they can make informed choices and be on a good career path. Through career exploration, students learn about the opportunities that exist and plan to realise their ambitions.  

Our objectives are achieved by:

  • Visits from speakers.
  • Delivering careers lessons.
  • Arranging work experience.
  • Having a careers fair where students have the opportunity to meet local and national employers and universities.
  • Liaising with the Positive Steps who employ and provide our careers advisors.
  • Encouraging students to use recommended websites to find the latest information on training, employment, apprenticeships, Further Education and Higher Education.
