Careers and Guidance

Careers learning at Flegg has three aims:

  • Self-development through careers and work related education .
  • Finding out about careers and the world of work
  • The development of skills for employability

This is delivered in lessons where teachers make links between the learning in the classroom and the wider world of work; through the Enterprise education programme in which students are helped to develop a “Can do, Will do” attitude and through wider activities. These include engagement with employers, work based education and training to give young people insights into the world of work, visits to and by colleges and universities, workplace visits, work shadowing, talks, taking part in challenges and competitions and mock interviews.

Guidance

Face to face Careers Guidance is available form a qualified, experienced and independent Advisor who is at the school one day a week.

Students can make an appointment through their tutor or drop in to see the Advisor during break times and lunchtimes on Fridays.
