Careers Education and Guidance
In Year 9, careers’ education is an awakening process for pupils. At this stage, it is expected that, while many pupils will have an idea about their intentions, most will not. Emphasis is placed on research and enquiry into general areas of employment in order to stimulate ‘interest and gain an understanding of entry levels and requirements.
Tower College works in partnership with Morrisby. Towards the end of Y10, all pupils complete the Morrisby psychometric questionnaire. The results are presented in an extensive and in-depth report for each pupil, which forms the basis for a one-to-one interview regarding their early career aspirations. These interviews take place either at the end of Y10 or early in Y11.
Morrisby provide ‘follow-up’ on the report and interview. This provides a framework for informed choice of subjects and application to sixth form college/school. As part of this process, pupils are given access to careers advice from Morrisby for life!
Morrisby will be present at Options Evening to offer consulatation regarding all aspects and implications of subject choice.
