INFORMATION ON JOBS AND CAREERS

Dear parents/caregivers

We are currently updating our Careers Programme.

In the New Year, I will be sending out a survey for you to complete.

We would like you to help us to ensure that we are supporting you and your child in the best way we can to make informed decisions about their choices post 16.

Options at Post 16 have increased recently with the introduction of T Levels. I have attached a link to a short video which explains all the options.

We would appreciate it if you could take the time to look at the new resources on the careers section of the website which, I hope, will answer any questions you may have about your child’s options once they leave St. Augustine’s School.

Once you have exhausted Monopoly over Christmas, why not play the 10 mins careers Quiz. Students will be given a quiz on this after the holidays and there will be prizes for top scorers.

I have also attached a copy of ‘ Shape your Future’ which is a new resource which gives more detailed information about career routes, options and pathways, including information about the changes in the labour market.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Best wishes for a safe and happy Christmas

Jess Pasco
