Key Stage 3- 4 Career Planning and subject choices at GCSE

In Year 9 pupils select their GCSE subjects and are supported through individual and group sessions by experienced members of staff and qualified Careers Advisors. We believe in providing high quality information can encourage discussion around choices that are supported by local labour market information to enable pupils to feel confident in their choices.

Our planned programme of careers lessons is designed to enable pupils to explore the world of work and also future work as they consider a wide range of opportunities and employment. We encourage and invite into school for assemblies and events a wide range of local employers, FE colleges and apprenticeship providers to support decision making and give the pupils meaningful opportunities to ask questions and find out information. Our own careers lessons cover many of the areas that often cause pupils concern, such as how to make the right GCSE choices? a look at local labour market information, the changing world of work and careers in Science Technology Engineering and Maths.
