Planning for their future
Calderstones School is committed to providing a comprehensive and fully inclusive careers education for all of their pupils from Year 7 to 13 with a view to inspire its pupils to develop an understanding of the different career pathways and opportunities open to them.
As such Calderstones School took the opportunity to actively participate in a number of activities throughout the week which culminated in pupils being invited to participate in an events organisation and management competition.
They delivered assemblies to Years 7-13 and all form tutors shared fun registration activities which aimed to develop the following transferrable skills – interpersonal, diplomacy, management, marketing and entrepreneurial skills.
Sharon Ellis, deputy headteacher, who co-ordinated the week’s activities said: “Our national careers week competition enabled us to assemble a pupil centred marketing committee for the Calderstones School inspiring your future day.
“We also offered additional prizes which included invitations to the your future careers fayre at Goodison Park and an opportunity for younger pupils to experience the diverse career opportunities at Manchester Airport during the summer term.
“We had a huge registration of interest and pupil participation – we really can’t wait to use their combined ideas, expertise and creativity in order to guarantee a trailblazing inspiring your future day during the last week of the summer term.
“Careers education, information advice and guidance is regarded as an integral part of the holistic development of students at Calderstones School. We believe in educating individual pupils of all abilities, each to a maximum of his/her potential, so that every student can enjoy a high quality of life and contribute responsibly and fully to the life of the community.
“Careers education, information, advice and guidance is embedded throughout the school and all staff see it as their responsibility to deliver sessions to motivate and inspire learners.”
