High quality careers education and guidance in school or college is critical to young people’s futures. It helps to prepare them for the workplace by providing a clear understanding of the world of work including the routes to jobs and careers that they might find engaging and rewarding. It supports them to acquire the self-development and career management skills they need to achieve positive employment destinations. This helps pupils to choose their pathways, improve their life opportunities and contribute to a productive and successful economy.
We have a responsibility to set students on the path that will secure the best outcome which will enable them to progress in education and work and give employers the highly skilled people they need. At Ysgol Nantgwyn, we act impartially, in line with our statutory duty, and do not show bias towards any route, be that academic or technical.
We are committed to providing relevant and appropriate careers and work related experiences for all our pupils, from nursery through to year 11, that enrich their classroom based learning and raise their aspirations. We seek to open their eyes to a world where they are masters of their own destiny and where no career path is out of reach. This is our passion, our promise and our duty.
All year groups across years 7 to 11 have access to a careers Google Classroom where they can access careers lessons and resources.
