  • Students reassess their personal strengths with a focus on transferable skills in workshop and one-to-one sessions

  • A variety of employers are made available to students to broaden knowledge and understanding - workshop sessions relevant to students based on specific areas of interest

  • Understand the range of options open to them and engage with a range of local business, FE and HE providers

  • Careers Week - careers quizzes, interesting facts and speakers embedded into curriculum lessons

  • Students are encouraged to challenge stereotypes within the world of work and traditional job roles through workshops and guest speakers
