Careers Education at Selby High School

At Selby High School we provide students with a wide range of careers education opportunities from Year 7 right through to Year 11. Our PSHCEE curriculum has specific career based units of work, with identified learning objectives, outcomes and related activities. Alongside this students have a number of opportunities to experience work related activities both within the school environment and through external visits.

We employ an independent careers advisor who is based in the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) and provides students with 1:1 careers support, advice, and guidance through an appointment system and drop in sessions.

Further information and detail can be found in the schools Careers Guidance Policy which can be accessed here.

Work Experience

Selby High School provides Work Experience for all Year 10 pupils for one week in the summer term. The aim of our Work Experience programme is to provide students with the opportunity to encounter the world of work and to provide them with an experience that will help them to make informed future career choices. Students immerse themselves within a working environment for an extended period of time enabling them to gain first-hand knowledge of what a particular job involves. The work experience allows them to demonstrate and record employability skills outside of the school environment and can therefore assist with gaining valuable social skills as well as being an aid towards choosing a suitable career.

We work with the North Yorkshire Business Education Partnership (NYBEP) to organise our work experience programme. Further information on how we manage and operate work experience can be found in the following Work Experience Policy and NYBEP publications:

Raising the participation age

The DFE recently increased the age to which all young people in England are required to continue in education or training.

The change was introduced in 2 stages:

  • pupils who left year 11 in summer 2013 had to continue in education or training for at least another year until June 2014
  • pupils who left year 11 in summer 2014 or later have to continue until at least their 18th birthday

This does not mean young people must stay in school. Young people will able to choose from:

  • full-time education (e.g. at a school or college)
  • an apprenticeship or traineeship
  • part-time education or training combined with one of the following:
    • employment or self-employment for 20 hours or more a week
    • volunteering for 20 hours or more a week
