Majority of staff regularly include the essential skills in their lessons with support of classroom displays and visuals on the work. In citizenship there is teaching of the skills and monitoring from tutors and the head of citizenship. Our autumn term teacher training sessions focussed on career champions across all curriculum areas to ensure that essential skills are being referenced in curriculum plans. Essential skills have been present and linked to many school events this year including a Year 8 drop down day, the school annual careers fair, Year 9 options evening and work-related learning opportunities. We have a Year 9 SEND careers focus group, which is operating in its second year, the whole focus for this group is to explore their interests, personal skills and how they measure against the essential skills.
