All students in Key Stage Three are actively involved in the Education for Employability Programme which

is one of the subjects underpinning the revised curriculum. We aim to bridge the cultural gap

that exists between what goes on outside the classroom and what happens in the classroom.


Employability is not just about asking our children what they want to be when they grow up

but it does recognise the impressions that children are making about the world of work

from a very young age through what they see in the media, what they hear from their

families and the roles they often undertake.


Employability seeks to build on childrens already existing awareness of the world

 around them. It is also wbout offering our young people an opportunity to see that

 for them school is their workplace. In this way they gain an insight into the importance

and relevance of the curriculum in literacy, numeracy, ICT and the many skills

needed for the modern world of work.

 

                                                              

   

 

 

All Year 8 pupils have one 45 minute period of Education for Employability every week. The Programme is supplemented by events through Young Enterprise including "Your School Your Business" and visiting speakers.
