In Upper 4, pupils are faced with their first real decisions regarding their next educational steps. The Careers programme here is designed to support GCSE choices by ensuring that pupils are informed, are beginning to analyse their own strengths and interests, and can begin to formulate decisions based on these factors. Pupils may begin to develop career interests and map these against subject choices.
This is delivered through:
Clear and comprehensive information, particularly useful for the Job Profiles section, covering easy-to-read outlines of over 800 different jobs. A good starting point when beginning to consider the breadth of career areas available.
Highly visual site using over 1000 video stories to examine jobs, career families and routes to qualifications. Useful for those who prefer to watch and listen to information rather than just reading.
