Key Stage 4
During Year 10 and Year 11 students are invited to attend Careers interviews with the One Education advisers. The advisers also run drop-in sessions on Monday and Wednesday lunchtimes, giving independent and up to date advice.
Bright Futures Project
The Bright Futures Project is an innovative work experience programme designed to raise the aspirations of all young people in terms of career opportunities.
During Year 10 students undergo two weeks of work experience. This is an opportunity for them to gain an insight into the ‘world of work’ and to help prepare them for the responsibilities and opportunities of adult life.
Year 11 students take part in a Careers Day where they all have the opportunity to experience a practice interview, write a CV, listen to an inspirational speaker and find out more about securing employment. The aim of the task is for students to work effectively as a team to understand financial planning and management and identify skills and attributes necessary for future employment and team building.
