Employability is an opportunity for pupils to learn, develop and gain key knowledge that will help in preparation for life after School.
It is a set of achievements – skills, understandings and personal attributes that helps pupils to be more socially prepared and likely to gain employment and be successful in their chosen occupations, which benefits themselves, the workforce, the community and the economy. At Hailey Hall, it will provide pupils with the opportunity to learn and think independently, be confident to voice their opinions on certain topics and get an insight into important topics that they will be moving onto in their near future. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other subjects such as mathematics, english, science, computing, sports, humanities and food technology. All pupils are encouraged to be able to think more independently, feel confident to be able to voice their opinions and ideas in group discussions, showing their understanding of the topics we cover.
The Employability curriculum is planned to enable all pupils to develop skills in the following areas:
- To be able to understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and the importance of exercise at a young
- To develop and raise awareness of the dangers around influences while becoming a young
- To get a clear understanding of ways in how we deal with managing our personal
