The coming months will provide several opportunities for Year 11 to consider their future pathways. Over the next few weeks Year 11 will participate in CV writing tutorials, giving them the opportunity to develop their CVs using the guidance given by, building on the work they started in Year 10. Students are encouraged to access their CVs at home through the portal and continue to update and review the information. In December Junior Achievement will be delivering their ‘Get a Job’ programme during which students will have a further opportunity to reflect on their CV, but also start developing a personal statement and considering essential interview skills. Knowledge and skills can then be practised and applied in the Junior Achievement Mock Interview scheme in February, where students will have the chance to participate in an interview specific to an industry in which they are interested. Post-interview feedback will be provided, giving valuable insight into the interview process and personal areas for development. In November, Year 11 will attend the Employment and Skills Event at the Villa Marina and will also visit UCM for subject taster sessions to find out about future pathways available to them through these routes after their GCSEs. Our introduction to Sixth Form at St. Ninian’s begins after Christmas with the Y11 Options Evening and Sixth Form Subject Taster sessions through which Year 11 will be able to experience A Level subjects to help inform their decision making. As part of supporting transition post Year 11, all students will be given an appointment for a careers interview with our careers advisor Andrew McKinley, who will help guide students on what pathways might suit their career goals and aspirations. Students may also make an appointment to speak with our Employability Co-ordinator Mr Ryder-Clague at any point during the year.
