Year 12 & Year 13

The exploration of careers continues in Year 12 & 13 with higher education, employment and apprenticeships being the focus of many talks, workshops and visits.  Raising awareness of mental health and resilience is also encouraged – ensuring students have a broad knowledge of their future options and how to set and achieve their goals.
