Careers

 

We’re really pleased to share with you the Telford Priory Careers programme. Please click on the PDF link to see the whole year’s plan.

Our Careers Programme works from Year 11 downwards. This is to ensure we support every Year 11 student in making their post 16 choices which are appropriate for them. All Year 11 students are offered a careers interview with our Careers Adviser, Leia Winch. Leia is based in school (Room 1.19) every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. There are lots of activities to support this process, including a Post 16 Progression Evening and college/sixth form lunch time drop in sessions. See the plan for more details

However, we don’t stop there. Year 10 students also need to start planning their Next Steps and will undertake their Work Experience week and are included in a number of bespoke Career planning sessions. See the plan for more details. There will be more information about Work Experience specifically.

But there’s more! We also include Key Stage 3 – Year 9 is an important year as students need to plan their Options choices, so we’ve made sure they’re included in lots of activities and they also have a chance to go on some of their own careers visits. See the plan for more details.

We’re also pleased to announce we’ll be taking some Year 8s to the Birmingham Skills Show this year and there will be a number of in-school activities too.

At the moment, we want Year 7s to focus on settling in, finding their way around the building and creating their new friendship groups – and of course, exceeding expectations in lessons!

As Telford Priory School progresses into its second year, we’ve put some improvements in place and been able to share what’s going on earlier. This plan isn’t set it stone – when there’s more to do, we’ll update the page.
