Year 10

Every student in Year 10 receives a Careers Interview to enable them to make an informed choice about Further Education, training or employment. Each student will be given tailored practical careers advice and information from a qualified member of staff during the school day. The programme allows students to explore careers which match their skills and interests. U-Explore - an online careers resource programme - can be used in school and at home.

Careers Education is further developed in Year 10 where students will learn about the world of work, their legal rights and responsibilities and practical information designed to support them when they leave Haygrove School. Students will continue to have access to the Careers Library where information is available on all aspects of FE, HE, apprenticeships and careers.


Work Experience Week

Work Experience is an important part of the careers education programme and is available to all Year 10 students. Students also have an initial careers interview with our Head of Careers looking at options once leaving school.

  • Work Experience is a great chance to get a taste of a job and see what skills you’re going to need for the world of work.
  • Work experience can be a great help if you’re still wondering what sort of career you want.

A work placement is your opportunity to spend a period of time outside the classroom, learning about a particular job or area of work. During your placement, you'll be able to find out what skills employers look for when they're hiring someone to fill a job vacancy.

You will also get the chance to develop your self-confidence and communication skills. This will help you to work better with other people in further or higher education, as well as in your future career.

Students will identify and apply for their own placement in an area of interest to them and work there for a week. Students will also be given the opportunity to gain those key skills needed for the world of work. The programme is designed to encourage independence and give a real taste of what work is really like. The programme is supported by full Health and Safety checks from South Somerset Partnership and students will be visited by a member of Haygrove staff during the week.
