Helping pupils prepare for life beyond school
Our careers programme is a whole school endeavour.
The discussion around career aspirations starts early. Learning about the workplace and careers is introduced from Year 7 and the conversation continues up until Year 11, where students focus on post-16 options.
Aside from the guided lessons, we offer and encourage the attendance of a variety of university and careers’ fairs, the opportunity to speak to alumni or parents about their careers, invitations to attend the National Careers Week, as well as careers related trips.
In recent times we have found that our pupils in Years 10 and 11 require more information and early discussion about their futures. We encourage early take-up of work experience and during Year 11 Morrisby interviews take place. We also meet regularly on a one-to-one basis to discuss pathways and options. Every student has a careers conversation each year, and we are looking at introducing a careers search platform open to our keystage 3 students very soon.
