Planning for a career

This month, the Academy hosted the Department of Work and Pensions Schools Team who delivered sessions to our Year 7 cohort looking at why we go to school and the link between school and the world of work. It really made our students think about how school prepares them for the outside world  and the importance of punctuality, reliability, social skills and working hard and how these skills are essential for college,  university and the workforce.  This session will be followed up by a careers lesson on why we go to work and what work means for different people and how working is a lifelong learning process.
