Middle School

In Middle School you will develop your understanding of careers through PSHE, project weeks and your wider curriculum areas. In Middle School we are beginning to prepare you for your Year 9 reviews where ‘Preparation for Adulthood’ outcomes will be discussed/ agreed. You will have opportunities for workplace visits which we hope will help to raise/ inform interests and aspirations and engagement in work. We will help you to understand the different employment pathways available to you in the future; this will include personal careers guidance from Year 9.

By the end of Middle School, you will have:

  • Taken part in at least two enterprise projects.
  • Had encounters with employers and employees (at least 3).
  • Experienced at least one work place visit a year.

By the end of Middle School, you will be able to:

  • Recognise the different skills you are developing in each curriculum area
  • Have an idea of what jobs/ careers you are interested.
  • Understand which option choices will help you to reach your goals.
