Students

Your school is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education throughout the full 5 years. Careers education is embedded into our Life Skills curriculum across years 7 to 11.

You will have access to impartial and independent careers advice via Halton Careers Education Service and to local employers.

We aim to prepare you for life beyond school by getting you to think about where you fit in to the world of work through activities, such as:

  • mentoring
  • workplace visits
  • careers fairs
  • guest speakers
  • 2 weeks of work-related learning
  • careers assemblies
  • trips and visits
  • breakout days
