Sharing best practice: careers in PSHE

(Gatsby 4 and 5)
St Michael’s Catholic School in High Wycombe shared some very simple, but effective best practice after the ‘Careers in PSHE’ workshop in February sponsored by Erasmus+.
Careers Coordinator Monika Grosch explains: “I agree the dates with our PHSE Coordinator so that the activities are timely (in particular for year 11 to prepare them for post-16 options) and planning and preparation can start early. We usually have a preparation session first, followed by an employer encounter and then a reflection activity.  This then gives our Enterprise Adviser plenty of time to help us plan events and invite employers.
“For example, this year for Year 7 we had an introductory Careers Question Time, in Year 8 we focused on a particular industry sector and in Year 9 we had our First Steps careers talks linked to choosing GCSE options. Sometimes for the preparation we use the free online careers platform Start to get students thinking about ideas. However you organise it, the key is to simply secure the dates early on – and start planning!”
