Explore careers and educational pathways

Futures Days provide your Year 8 and 9 students with information, advice and guidance about where their Key Stage 4 options choices can lead.

They will learn about:

  • the importance of skills and qualifications
  • the different educational pathways they can take
  • potential careers
  • how their choices could impact upon future decisions

They will also get the chance to talk to students at different stages in their education, from sixth form to university.

A fun, interactive day

Your students will take part in interactive, hands-on workshops here on campus.

The skills of your students are central to the workshops, and we encourage them to think about the importance of skills and qualifications.

The day begins with a fun skills and personality workshop to explore your students' strengths and interests. We use this information throughout the workshops so they get a better understanding of the educational routes and careers most suited to them.

We also introduce them to online tools to help them research different careers and educational pathways. All activities throughout the day complement the Careerpilot website.

Students leave the day with a workbook which they can take back to school if they want to continue their research.
