Key Stage 3-4



Careers education is fundamental in education. Our aim is to ensure that all pupils at TDPC are given the opportunity to explore different career choices and are aware of the different options they have at the end of their schooling. All KS4 students will receive independent Careers advice from a suitably qualified specialist.



Careers is taught by all members of staff and follows the plan and resources outlined below

We acknowledge that our cohort of pupils at TDPC have had disrupted learning and sometimes struggle to access learning. We are ambitious for all our pupils to have high aspirations for their future.



To raise aspirations for all our students about their future working lives. To explore different education options, careers, apprenticeships, traineeships and jobs that are on offer while gaining an awareness about their own personalities, strengths, interests, motivations, abilities and how they can fit into the world or work.
