Did you know that our local area has more people in employment than the UK average, or that over 13% of people locally are self-employed? When considering post-16 courses and future careers we encourage students to look at the local labour market information to see the types of employers and job roles locally. In Devon, there are many sectors which are experiencing growth, including digital, IT, energy and science. A summary can be found below.
Our careers and IAG programme this year will be delivered mainly in PHSE on a Thursday afternoon, with additional input from loal employers and visits to FE colleges or other events, when we are able to. We will be drawing on online careers programmes to support us, particularly in the Autumn term.
Should you wish to discuss post-16 options, or are able to help share your experiences with students to enhance our careers programme, please contact Mr Boardman.
