You can support your child in this area of our curriculum by exploring the wealth of information available on the internet, as well as by engaging in careers events with school when applicable

All young people must remain in education, training or employment with training until the age of 18.  It is therefore vitally important that during their time at school the careers education programme provides a structured approach, guiding all students to be able to formulate and work towards their future goals and aspirations.

Here are some particularly useful websites which explore careers, apprenticeships and skills building which you may find helpful in guiding your child -

If you feel able to offer support to the school in this area via the delivery of an assembly or a workshop based on your experience of the world of work please contact Mary Houlton (careerslead@longbenton.org.uk).
