Our School

Careers in the Curriculum

All students at Fir Vale School study careers and aspiration in discreet lessons within the Ethics curriculum. We have a planned unit of work for each year group, which builds on previous learning and the needs of the students in each particular year group. Students research local labour market information, in order to support them in making informed decisions. A small, specialist team of teachers deliver this.

Alongside this, students in KS4 have the opportunity to study vocational subjects such as Engineering, Hair and Beauty, Childcare, Health and Social Care, Business Studies, Film and Media, Hospitality and Catering and Skills for Work.
