Here, you can find all sorts of information about how we are getting you ready for the future. This could include where you want to work. This could also include where you would like to continue learning.

Message from the Careers Lead

While you are with us at Milestone, you will learn all about different jobs you can do and businesses you can work for.

You will think a lot about the future, especially what life might be like when you are an adult.

Your teachers and teaching assistants are all trained so that they can give you the best help possible. This includes helping you decide what you want to do when you are an adult.

Sometimes you will learn about careers in specific lessons. Other times, you will learn about careers while you learn about other things.

Your teachers will invite visitors to talk to you about jobs and careers.

You will also get special help from someone called a Careers Advisor.

When you are in Year 10 or above, you will get the chance to try different jobs. This is called “work experience.” Some of our students even do an extra-special kind of work experience called a Supported Internship when they are in Year 14.

If you want to know more about how we will teach you about jobs, careers and the future, you can ask your class teacher or any member of staff.

Careers Education

Our students learn about the world of work at all ages, but we teach you about careers in Phase 3 and Phase 4. We want you to know a lot about:

  • Yourself
  • What you can do if you put your mind to it
  • How you can keep improving

You will learn all about careers, which means the jobs you might do, and where you will continue to learn.

We will give you the best information and advice that we can.

You will meet people who have different jobs. You might ask them questions. They will show you what tools they use, or tell you about what they do.

You will have lessons about careers, but you will also learn about careers when you go on school trips, when we have visitors and guests, and when you are out and about with your friends and family.

If you want to find out more about careers, you or your family can always talk to me!
