In Year 10, students will also be encouraged to take part in a two day placement giving them an introduction to the world of work and a taste of the sector that they are looking to work in. Students will be given the opportunity in Key Stage 5 (sixth form) to participate in a longer work experience placement. In Year 11 they receive guidance and encouragement when completing application forms for college, sixth form or apprenticeships. Through our links with Birmingham Metropolitan College, students are given the opportunity to participate in careers events and other enrichment activities. SMSC, PSHE and British Values are integrated into our schemes and taught cross-curricularly; alongside literacy and numeracy, time is also found to deliver these aspects of our curriculum during form periods, assemblies and challenge days.
