SHAPING CAREERS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE


Since the job market nowadays is so challengingit’simportant that secondary school education focuses onacademic success and gaining important qualifications, as well as guiding pupils to make the correct subject choices to reflect their future further education and overall career aspirations. 


Providing extensive and expert careers counsel from as early as year 7 is a clear priority at King Edward’s Witley, a co-educational boarding and day school for children aged 11 – 18 years old. Here’s what they have to say on the matter:

“As a School we are committed to ensuring that our pupils have access to a wide range of resources designed to help them develop a clear understanding of the opportunities that await them upon the completion of their A-levels or IB studies.  Careers guidance features heavily within the curriculum .

It also permeates daily school life as we also make it our responsibility to open our pupils’ eyes to the world of work via the exciting programme of extra-curricularactivities and events which is growing year on year”.

In fact, the school has just held another successful Careers Fair, featuring a keynote speaker from the Careers Service at Imperial College London.

 The Careers Fair, which was open to pupils in years 11, 12 and 13, by inviting former King Edward’s pupils (known as Old Wits) who were just at the start of their careers or mid university studies, to attend as guest speakers.

Helping pupils identify the best pathway to achieve their personal goals, whether this includes finding a place in the working environment or at a university of their choice is of paramount importance for teaching, as is equipping young people with a moral and well-rounded outlook on life and the social / practical skills required to succeed in the next phase of their journey towards adulthood.
