World of Work Around Me

Every Friday, every young person in Secondary and Post 16 takes part in a session called Future Fridays.

This is an opportunity to explore labour market information. Labour market information allows the young person to discover different employment sectors and establish a greater understanding. These can be things such as:

  • Explore the different jobs within the sector
  • Identify what skills and qualities you need to work within the sector
  • National rate of pay
  • Qualifications required and where you can go to do this.
  • The need for this position in the midlands

This is delivered by individual class teachers, and at times will be assisted by an expert of this sector. If you work within one of the sectors and would like to come in and tell our young people about your profession, we would love to hear from you.

Attached are the different sectors we have explored so far.

These can be used as a tool at home — to begin thinking about the next steps.
