Curriculums are individually developed around the child or young person in order for them to achieve success and gain the skills and qualifications needed for them to move on to the next phase of their life.
- 100% of children and young people at our school have access to community activities which reflect their personal interest.
- All of the children and young people are learning independence skills to support them to move on.
- All of the children and young people have the opportunity to obtain college placements with local colleges such as West Notts College.
The pathway at Wings School Notts is strengthened because of our additional residential provision for those with more complex mental health issues which is supported by an experienced clinical team. Children and young people can access the residential pathway at any stage and education is available to all.
Careers – Thinking about the future?
We will support your child/young person towards the best possible future pathway. We will work closely with you on your child`s hopes, dreams and aspirations.
Careers is now part of our core curriculum offer and it is taught throughout the school from Years 8-11.
During Year 8 the children and young people look at the skills and qualities needed for different types of jobs and will start to develop their own CV. In Year 9 we begin to take a more in depth look at the range of different careers and career pathways that are available to each young person.
During every half term, for a full week the children and young people in Y10 and Y11 take part in a variety of careers-related activities during core curriculum lessons which include the following activities: CV writing, application letter writing, mock interview skill development, learning about tax and wages and learning how to search for jobs online.
In Year 11, the main emphasis is on planning for the future. The children and young people have the opportunity to further explore all the options open to them e.g. College or employment with training and apprenticeships. During Year 10 and 11 there are also regular meetings with our Careers Advisor for further bespoke careers advice and guidance.
We have an annual careers fair involving a variety of employers such as the armed services, fire service and paramedics. We have excellent links with these services and they regularly come into the school to run fun filled activity days advising on opportunities and careers.
