Careers information for students

Sandymoor School is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education for all our students in years 7 – 11. Careers education will be delivered through the Careers curriculum and complemented with additional activities. We are also committed to providing access to impartial and independent careers advice via Halton Careers Education Service for all students in year 11; and through access to local employers. Impartial careers information and advice will be delivered by Graeme Peace.

The main aim of the careers department is to prepare pupils for life beyond Sandymoor School by linking them to the real world of work through mentoring, workplace visits, careers fairs, guest speakers and work related learning. 

Our students in years 7-11 follow our Careers programme, they have one lesson per fortnight.

Years 7 and 8: Students start to think about careers; enterprise, 21st century skills, career paths, entrepreneurial skills, and ethical trading.

Years 9 and 10: Students develop an understanding of budgeting money, planning and dealing with your finances, building a CV, finding employment, and investigating careers and colleges.

Year 11: Students have careers assemblies as a year group with external employers and providers; CEIAG sessions within their academic tutorial time; trips and visits and breakout days.

Careers Fair:  All of our students from year 7-11 are able to attend our Careers Fair on 13th November 2018.  We have 31 employers and providers attending.
