Careers Education Update
Every pupil has the right to the best careers education that is pupil-centric, raises aspirations for life, encourages independence, builds confidence and which empowers all our pupils to plan and prepare for adulthood. Personalised careers education at Perseid School will inspire the potential of every pupil and support every individual to discover their best next step.
A comprehensive programme of key-stage specific Careers Education that is flexibly tailored for each student, is in place throughout the curriculum in addition to specific careers teaching through the Upper School PSHE programme to enable all students in KS3, KS4 and 6th Form to develop their own personal future pathway based on their aspirations, abilities and needs.
Our Careers focus this term:
- Preparation for Adulthood lessons - beginning to understand and learn about the essential skills needed as the students prepare for adulthood
- Work experience - on and off-site including one pupil taking on the role of assistant sports coach with Merton Sports Partnership
- Skills Builder - beginning to introduce weekly skills challenges from KS3 - 6th form and reflect in end of week assembly incl certificates.
