Brompton Hall School Careers Action Plan 2020-21

Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic the ability to complete these milestones as planned may be affected due to post 16 providers or employers not being able to support in the planned way. Some of these events may need to be changed to digital formats.

  Some Y10 and some Y10 students had opportunities with staff support to engage with employers. 

 

Due to Covid19 these did not take place. For Years 9-11, online interactions were placed online when students were walking from home. Very little evidence that these took place. Year 10 students who were in school (4 students) participated in this work. 

 

 

Excellent talk with Army. Students engaged and thinking about skills. 

 

May need to develop online encounters for 2020-21 due to Covid19. Steam School to be launched.

Some Y10 students were unable to attend due to behaviour and a holiday. 

Covid19 stopped the Summer Wex placement (2 Year 11 students completed within school though). Students working from home were signposted to complete virtual work experience but little evidence that this took place. 

 

Visits did not take place due to Covid19

Excellent preparation by Coventry University. Y10 and Y11 have had different taster sessions. Feedback was positive from both groups. Understand what University is for. 

 

Year 10 taster day took place- some students completed it well. Some behaviour was poor and did not perform well. Next  years Year 10 to complete it.
