Careers & Work Related Education

Bryn Tirion Hall School aims to help all students fulfil their potential and experience success through an educational environment which responds to individual need and stimulates and challenges each and every student. The processes of informing, advising and guiding students are accorded a high priority within the school, and are seen as crucial in preparing students to make decisions regarding the opportunities and challenges of adult and working life

The BTH school’s CWRE programme has been designed in response to the Welsh Government agenda in ensuring that every pupil has access to current, well-researched information about all the options available to them after compulsory education. By corkscrewing employability throughout our curriculum, pupils and are given every chance to experience work-related activities as part of their schooling, enabling pupils to identifying their strengths, interests and aspirations and linking them to achievable, meaningful careers and to allow a more seamless transition into adulthood and the word of work.

All students aged 14+ participate in our Pathways Careers Education Programme following a scheme of work which is linked to the ASDAN Work Related Education modules and is delivered by a combination of class led sessions, and visiting employer/partner delivered sessions and activities/initiatives in and out of school. The CWRE Manager facilities initial careers engagement, and develops this over time into meaningful advice sessions for each pupil, tailored to their individual needs and interests

In addition, an Alternative Provision Framework is also on offer to years 10 + 11, to increase vocational skills and qualifications. This includes the opportunity to study one day a week at college on a L1 qualification of their choice (subject to availability) which familiarises them with the further education environment and prepares them for the post 16 options.

Sessions are supplement by further careers related information embedded within curriculum lessons and extra-curricular experiences and from information available on recommended websites, at jobs careers and further training fairs, and displayed on noticeboards in schools.

The careers education curriculum supports their chosen pathway and enables them to translate their practical experiences into  knowledge, equipping them with all that they need to make more informed choices about their ‘next steps’ course of study and future career.
