National Careers Week
Week commencing 6th March 2023 is National Careers week, which follows on from National Apprenticeship week last month.
In school, students will have assemblies based around; careers education at the Piggott, different careers pathways open to them and local labour market information. The assemblies will be adjusted for each year group. A year 7 student might will want to know different information compared to a year 13 student!
In tutor time, students will guess jobs their teachers have had in the past. Signposted where they can find additional information about careers and complete a survey asking them about how they find the careers provision at the Piggott and how we can develop it over the next few years.
Parents/carers may find the guide below to be a useful resource when looking at careers and talking with your child about careers.
