Our 14-19 vocational options give our pupils the opportunity to learn vocational skills within school. We currently offer the folowing courses:
- Working in a Cafe
- Bike Maintenance
From Year 10, throughout the class-based careers course, all pupils are given information about appropriate opportunities in the world of work. They undertake practical workshops, role-play and visits to a variety of work environments. Pupils are also offered work experience placements or internal work-related experiences according to their needs and abilities.
Specialist Careers Advisors from Careers Wales work in close liaison with the school, pupils and parents from Year 9 onward to plan appropriately for the transition from school. To support this work, strong links exist with local colleges (both local and residential) and other training providers in the local area.
We are delighted with the pride our pupils take in their successes at these work experience ventures and we are equally proud of the number of Careers Wales awards which we have earned for this aspect of our work.
