Pupils are also provided with information about Labour Market Information which helps inform them about types of careers that may be available in their area, and which sectors have skills gaps currently and over the next 6 years.  

After a Careers (Guidance) Interview, each pupil will be provided with an action plan which will detail the discussion, highlighting their options, next steps and how to carry out further research. These action plans are emailed to the pupil concerned via their school email address.  Pupils from all Year groups (7-11) are able to book a careers appointment, and each form also is visited by one of the advisors throughout the year.

Mploy Youth provides flexible employability packages for academies, schools and colleges. We can support students to develop the core skills and competencies valued by employers. We prepare students, by building confidence and experience to make a successful transition from education to the world of work.

Students wanting to make that leap into the world of work after GCSEs, A levels or BTECs, or would prefer to earn whilst they learn rather than go to University can register their details with us and we will put them forward for roles with local employers which match their skills, experience and interests.

We know how tough the jobs market is out there at the moment so young people need to be equipped with all the right tools and skills to be successful in getting the job which they have been working towards.
