Work Experience Within our Careers Programme

Work Experience Within our Careers Programme

"Building upon the learning of students from Key Stage 3, our bespoke Key Stage 4 programme focuses on a deeper and more personalised preparation for the world of work. The Careers education in Key Stage 4 at Aston Academy incorporates a working understanding of the workplace, including how to create a good CV, how to prepare effectively for an interview, customer service skills and, in Year 10, an authentic week's experience of a local workplace.

We work with our business partner, Richard Jones, from B and E Together, to source personalised placements, which link directly to both student interest and aspiration.

Year 10 attended an informative Assembly about Work Experience on Tuesday November 7th and parents/carers were invited to an associated presentation and Q and A opportunity also in the same week.

We look forward to working with all Year 10 students and their parents/carers on this exciting and new venture, and to finding and preparing our students for the most appropriate, useful and enjoyable placements possible."
