At Leaways we are constantly working on helping children develop the qualities, skills and knowledge that they will need to go on to have successful academic and working careers. This is a focus of everything that we do; our curriculum is built around developing academic knowledge, practical skills and the personal and social skills required for the modern employment market.
Children from KS4 are provided with opportunities to achieve the Gatsby Benchmarks. This includes: education around careers and employment within school, encounters with employers and employees, experiences of the work place, experiences with Further and Higher education, individual career advise and guidance in KS3 and 4 and learning about the Labour Market and how Labour Market information can be used to guide their career choices.
Children and young people enjoy access to an extensive range of imaginative learning opportunities which capture and sustain their interest and a range of qualifications including GCSEs are available for study and achievement.
One of the routes that our young people might choose to take when progressing with their education when they leave Leaways School might be to undertake an Apprentship. Children are encouraged to discuss these options with their careers advisor, tutor or any other member of staff.
Children and young people from Leaways also have the opportunity to take part in a range of exciting work experience placements in the community such as mechanics, catering and bike maintenance often leading to employment.
