Careers

A programme of self-development, career exploration and career management enables pupils to understand themselves and gives them an opportunity to research and plan an appropriate career path.

The library has its own area devoted exclusively to careers. Pupils will find a variety of resources which are suitable for key-stages 3-5. There is a comprehensive selection of information files relating to both personal welfare and jobs. These are displayed according to the Connexions Derbyshire filing system. We also have all the current handbooks from universities to help with UCAS applications.

The library entrance area is another valuable source of information.

The librarian is always on hand to assist with queries relating to careers. Daily notices on Boodle will inform pupils of current news and updates.

Throughout  KS4 and Post 16  there are opportunities to visit Training Providers, attend sessions run by these providers and take part in visits to places of employment or colleges.

Staff in each curriculum area has a wealth of knowledge and expertise and pupils have opportunities to focus on possible career paths resulting from their studies. This is seen as playing an important role in helping to motivate pupils to fully appreciate what they are studying and to maximise achievement both academically and personally.
