Year 9 CAREERS INITIATIVE

As part of the development of our careers strategy to increase awareness of career options amongst our students , we will be tasking year 9 students to choose a career and find out how to progress into this after school. This involves, in skills for life and as homework, going on to the National Careers Service website 

https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.ukfinding a career of interest, identifying what that career involves, what skills and qualifications it requires, what payscale and lifestyle it offers, where would be the best progression route after school to make this path accessible and where this career path might take the student.
