Careers Advice

 

Careers Advice and useful Websites – KS3

Choices for GCSEs are made by the pupils early on in Year 9 and therefore we encourage our Year 7 & 8 pupils to consider possible career pathways.  The purpose is to enable them to make informed decisions when choosing their options at their senior school.

This is achieved through the PSHE curriculum in formal lesson time with our comprehensive careers content in PSHE lessons giving pupils an insight into various careers, Year 8 students undertake a P2i looking at specific careers of interest. We look at wage, careers, qualifications, skills, qualities and different sorts of qualifications to get into different careers over a six week period.  Following this, here at Trevelyan Middle School in our Summer term we also hold an annual Careers Fayre where we invite parents to come and talk about their many varied and inspiring careers, which has proved to be extremely popular with our year 8's.

Below are some useful website links for KS3, our year 7 & 8 pupils to give them some ideas of what careers are available and different pathways to achieving these:
