Hobbies and Careers

 

Hobbies and Careers is one area that supports students in the preparation for their next stage of learning.  It supports with the successful transition to adulthood and provides students with a range of experiences and practical activities from Year 7 onwards. It enables them to not only develop new skills but to practice and embed skills in a range of contexts. This supports in the next stage of life, not only with post school choices but also the young person’s participation in leisure and community engagement throughout their school life and beyond. 

 

Examples of taking part.

 

 

Students build up a profile, which they update each term, showing experiences/activities they have taken part in and which activities they have or haven’t enjoyed. This is then shared at the Annual Review of EHCP.

 

 

The Hobbies and Careers curriculum offer is flexible and is planned based on:

  • pupils needs
  • pupil interests
  • pupil voice
  • opportunities that become available

 

The Hobbies and Careers curriculum includes opportunities both in school and the local community.
