KS4 Careers Years 10 & 11

In year 11 you will need to make some important decisions about your future pathways. Exploring your career ideas will be really useful.  

In addition to the careers activities which you will cover in class, you might also want to talk through your ideas and plans with a registered careers adviser. One to one appointments can be made by calling in at the careers center.

 

Finding out more about the career sector you would like to work in is an important part of career planning. It can help answer questions such as:-

  • Is it a thriving sector or does the economic environment mean there are likely to be closures or redundancies.
  • Is the area a growth sector and are new jobs predicted in the future?
  • Are there local opportunities for this type of employment?

The following websites will help me to find out more about the labour market:- Nomis – Official Labour Market Statistics www.nomisweb.co.uk Graduate Prospects www.prospects.ac.uk and LMI For All www.lmiforall.org.uk

LMI For All www.lmiforall.org.uk  is an online data portal, developed by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, which brings together existing national sources of high quality labour market information (LMI) that can help  inform your choices about careers.
