PHSEE Lessons

In Year 7 and 8 there were modules on careers and over the coming weeks students will have a series of lessons based in a computer room of the library working with their PHSEE teacher and our careers advisor investigating careers and the options process. They will use the KUDOS website and also other sources of information.

Form time curriculum

Each week on a Thursday students have learnt about a new career – this started way back in Year 7 and has continued through Year 8 and 9.

The careers are explored using the BBC Bitesize and i-Could websites, which use inspirational videos, case studies and labour market information to inform students and promote discussion.
