Careers Education and Guidance & Work-Related Learning make a major contribution to preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life, in order to help them make a successful transition to adulthood.
A planned, tailored and progressive programme of activities and interventions supports learners in choosing pathways that suit their interests and abilities, help young people to follow a career path and manage the transitions of their working lives.
Aims: Our aim is to help learners, through careers and work-related activities and interventions, to be able to:
- Develop their understanding of themselves in relation to future learning and employment opportunities
- Learn and experience careers and the world of work
- Develop their career management and employability skills
