The aim of Careers Education is to enable young people to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to understand themselves. It supports making choices, encourages research opportunities and the ability to manage transitions from education into training or employment. It is in place to foster independent learning, develop employability skills and explore how to use information advice and guidance. In short, it is about developing the skillset to enable the take up of experiences or opportunity to enrich lives.
Our vision statement and core values, ensure that empathy, articulation, positive relationships, resilience, praise and evaluation are embedded into our curriculum and that our story is known to our learners and their families. This ‘prepare’ agenda embeds the values needed for adulthood, employability and success.
All learners have at least one lesson per week of dedicated Careers education which is mapped to the Career Development Institute’s framework for careers, employability and enterprise education.
