CAREERS

Careers Education is an important part of provision for all students at Walney School. Careers advice is integrated throughout the curriculum to enable our students to make “real world” connections between their studies and their future.

 

Mission Statement

“At Walney School we aim to provide careers guidance that raises aspirations, challenges stereotypical thinking (in terms of gender etc.) and develops ‘life- long learning’ skills in our students. We aim to ensure that, when they leave Walney School, 100% of our students enter sustained employment, education or training and that this is the most appropriate level for them.”

 

We are passionate about inspiring our students to be the best that they can be and to ‘reach for the stars’ in their future career choice. We endeavour to provide students with the best careers advice they deserve and need.

Personalised and progressive careers advice and guidance is available throughout the school years.

Programmes include:

  • Futures Fridays

  • Employability Passport

  • Year 10 Employability Week

  • Enterprise Activities

  • Information and Advice Sessions/ Assemblies

  • Higher and Further Education Visits

  • Business Simulation exercises

  • Leadership training

  • Careers Fairs
