Careers Education

Good career guidance helps inspire students towards further study and enables them to make informed decisions whenever choices are open to them. It helps them to understand enough about the world of work to know what skills they need to succeed. It is important for social mobility because it helps open pupils’ eyes to careers they may not have considered.

Our dedicated careers education programme is delivered in four ways:

Delivered to a specific pathway; Business, Engineering, IT or Medical Science, or all students on Monday mornings these sessions will:

  • Provide an overview of a business or sector
  • Explore career roles available
  • Confirm the entry requirements required; grades, recruitment processes with a focus on Maths and English etc.

And, to date we have secured the following speakers:

  • 6th February, UK Fast
  • 13th February, Tyco
  • 27th February, The Skills Company
  • 6th March, Hays Recruitment Specialists
  • 13th March, EMR
  • 20th March, NHS

Our Careers Education Fair scheduled for 23rd March, 4-7pm currently has 30+ employers registered who will showcase their business and career opportunities to students and parents. All students , aged 14-19, have been invited to the event as well as other students from the Warrington area.

If you would like a stall to showcase your business and careers please let us know asap as we only have a few stalls remaining!

We hope it will be a fantastic event and if successful will become a permanent feature on our events calendar.

Each Year 11 and Year 13 student is given an Information, Advice and Guidance 1:1. The IAG progress looks to drive the choices our students have made and confirm their destinations at post 16 and 18. Future Tech Studio staff use this information to motivate them to achieve academically, offering individual support where required, as well as signpost employers and education establishments.

Built into the curriculum of each pathway we are starting to showcase one career a month. This could be a career in project management, HR, architecture, cyber security or a petroleum engineer. Teachers will align their topics to careers exploring the following:

  • Key skills, technical knowledge or behaviour requirements (EmployAbility)
  • Expected salaries, starting and up to
  • Employers currently recruiting in this area
  • Entry requirements and routes available; Apprenticeships, University etc.

If you could help us by sending information about careers in your industry which could be used in the classroom we’d love to hear from you.
