Learning about careers

Broadening horizons about the world of work...You are never too young to start thinking about the type of job that you would like to do when you are older.  Research shows that young people who participate in Career Education increase their knowledge abouy types of work and the pathways that could be followed to get there.  Pupils can become more confident about their ability to achieve their aspirations and learn about career paths that they may never have come across before.  It can also impact on engagement with school and academic achievement.  At St Joseph's we take every opportunity to teach children abou the exciting world of work, further education and higher education.  By making connections with local companies and inviting speakers in, we want our children to broaden their horizons and to think about their future.
