Careers Policy and Strategy

Willow Dene places the needs of each student at the centre of all learning and experiences. This ethos is reflected in our Careers Policy which has been developed to meet the specific individual needs of our young people whilst following the government Careers Strategy and Statutory Guidance. At Willow Dene the planned Careers Programme centres upon our young people’s individual interests and strengths in relation to their future, work and further education. These areas are explored from Year 7 to Year 11 through the curriculum which includes the Special Interest Scheme and Enterprise Projects in key stage 3 and Positive Contribution and Futures Mapping Schemes in key stage 4. Through these, young people learn about careers, opportunities to volunteer and encounters with employers both in and out of school.
