Careers – Year 8

Year 8- Exploring Work

During Winston Extra, tutor time and careers events, students explore the world of work, gaining a greater understanding of employers' expectations, employability skills and the labour market.

A business led consultation allows students the opportunity, as part of their self-improvement work through Winston Extra, to talk to a representative from business and answer questions about themselves in order to breakdown the intimidating nature of an interview.

All students attend the careers fair with exhibitors from our local colleges, universities and employers. This gives students an opportunity to discuss future courses and career pathways.
