Firstly, if you’re not sure what you’d like to do when you leave school, try the SACU careers quiz for some pointers.
In KS5, we tailor our programme so that students are supported through the transition to Post 16 plans in a number of ways:
- Embedding the skills of resilience, independence and autonomous learning
- Post 18 options are explored via PSHE lessons; super curricular activities; attendance at the annual Apprenticeship and University Fayre
- Utilising alumni links; university, apprenticeship and employer partnerships
CareersBox video shorts shown in form time raise awareness of a number of different career opportunities across a range of sectors.Students and parents / carers are made aware of Post 16 pathways and opportunities via our website and newsletter
All Year 12 students complete weekly Christian Action placements in the local community and an additional week of Work Experience in July
Students are actively encouraged and supported to undertake work experience opportunities linked to their career paths when opportunities arise. Students can also self refer to our CEIAG advisor for further support
