Careers and Transition

We have a very structured and planned transition program that is worked through during mentoring sessions with key workers each week. Part of this program is to examine careers. We are keen for our pupils to move into a Post-16 course/apprenticeship that accommodates their skills, interests, personality, and values.  Pupils are encouraged to consider what is important to them and to increase their self-awareness through the Transition Program. This program enables pupils to develop their personal insight and knowledge, and to develop career planning.
