Careers

 

We are pleased to share with you The Telford Priory School Careers Programme.

Our Careers Programme is for all years from 7-11. We aim to provide a robust programme ensuring all students make informed decisions about a range of options for their future. It is important that our careers programme helps raise the aspirations our young people have in regards to employment and access to Further and Higher Education (FE/HE) and ensure all students have the opportunity to reach their full potential, and become the best versions of themselves they can be.

Our strong links with FE/HE, businesses and employers enables the careers programme to support students in learning about and understanding of the labour market, linking curriculum learning to careers and helps to make sense of the World of Work and different pathways and progression routes.

We also understand as a school it is important for parents to see why we are doing what we are for the students in regard to careers. We want the students to understand the full range of opportunities to them from the school but also from the area they live in, therefore we believe it is important to teach students about labour market information to allow them to fully understand the guidance they are getting linked to their future.
