Learning For Life & Work
- Learning for Life and Work allows pupils to develop as individuals and contributors to society, the economy and the environment.
- By studying Learning for Life and Work pupils will develop the skills they require to think independently, make informed choices and take appropriate action in relation to personal, social, economic and employment issues.
Learning for Life and work allows pupils to develop their thinking skills and enables them to reflect and evaluate their own learning and work effectively with others.
Learning for Life and Work also gives pupils the opportunity to develop a range of skills and develop their employability potential and key transferable skills.
Learning for Life and Work is delivered in Years 8 & 9 one hour per week. In year 10 careers is delivered one hour per week to allow pupils to make informed subject choices and to prepare them for the future world of work.
