Year 11 and 12 students who do not study GCSE Learning for Life and Work will cover the 6 statutory statements for Employability at Key Stage 4 within their Careers class which takes place once per fortnight.  Those who do study GCSE Learning for Life and Work have a one period per fortnight allocated for Careers Education.

The Year 11 programme has more a focus on the non careers related topics for example social responsibility and globalisation then within the Year 12 programme we are more focused on the careers related topics like recruitment and selection and their personal career planning.  In Year 12 the selection process is further developed via Interview preparation and completing of CV’s and personal statements for their Progress file. Pupils are made aware at this stage of the different routes, qualifications, education and training open to them, post 16. Once again pupils are made aware of the options available to them in Sixth form and they are assisted in subject choice. Time is taken to make pupils comfortable with their choices.  Majority of students will be interviewed by a Careers Advisor from the Department of Employment and Learning and this interview will be supported with if necessary by a member of the careers team within the college.

All students in Key Stage 3 and 4 will complete Assessments on topics covered within their Careers/Employability class.  Also the subject is included in our annual report to parents.
