CAREERS AND HIGHER EDUCATION GUIDANCE
In Year 10 CEIAG becomes more tailored towards students specific needs and aspirations. Students are able to self-refer to meet with our independent and impartial careers advisor or our higher education advisor by emailing Mrs Suvari who is Coordinator of Careers Education within school.
Research shows that learning in school becomes more effective and relevant if students can see where their education might lead them in the future. With this in mind students take part in ‘Take your Daughter to Work Day’. This is a fun and fascinating way to explore the world of work, think about career options, and make informed educational decisions. It gives students an opportunity to explore career options, through:
- Understanding the importance of staying in school by learning first-hand what skills are required in today’s workplace
- Thinking about what aspects of their “work day” they liked and what they didn’t
- Exploring career options in a practical way and gain a better understanding of just how many career choices are open to them
- By spending a day in the life of a working adult, they develop an appreciation of their parents’ work and motivation
Students have the opportunity to sit the Morrisby Online Careers Assessment. Benefits of the online assessment may include increased self-awareness by providing objective analysis of aptitudes, interests, motivations and preferences and may also provide students with focus, direction and motivation in their studies and help students to select the most relevant Further and Higher Education subjects. Morrisby Online supports students with lifetime access to their own personal interactive career and educational planning website. Students receive feedback in the form of an on-line report which includes students aptitudes, career Interests, preferred working environment, employment style & suitability and also Higher Education course information. Further information is available on the Morrisby website.
Students are reminded how to access the schools careers library and careers website on Frog. Both provide access to impartial and independent information about a wide range of careers, education and training options and students are encouraged to carry out further independent research and exploration.
