Students in Year 12 take part in numerous careers and enterprise activities during the year and are presented with information on the full range of options available once they have completed their sixth form study. The whole year group attends a university and careers fayre at Leeds Beckett University in the summer and receive information in school during an apprenticeship and UCAS information evening. Many students take advantage of enrichment time on Wednesday afternoon to gain work experience and all students complete a week of work experience at the end of the year.
Employers also engage with students in year 12 by running mock interviews and practice assessment centres. Students further develop careers skills through PSE, with pupils looking at how to complete covering letters, apply for part-time work and complete a CV. A careers adviser form C&K Careers is available throughout the year for students to make an appointment with to discuss their individual career needs.
There are lots of extra-curricular activities that allow students to develop their careers and enterprise knowledge and skills in year 12. These include the debating, the Bar Mock Trial Competition and Medsoc.
