Key Stage 3
In Year 8, you will be introduced to software called Kudos Inspire and Launchpad to help you learn about the variety of careers available and routes into those careers. You can access this software within the academy or from home as you will receive your own login details. You will also participate in a WOW day (world of work day), supported by Inspira and you will spend time with a range of employers to support you with your option choices.
You will complete a careers unit in your PD lessons prior to choosing your options in Year 8 where you will reflect on your skills and interests as well as hopes and aspirations. Local businesses also support our careers education programme and ambassadors deliver assemblies to Year 7, 8 and 9 students about progression routes and options for the future.
