Careers Subject Pathways and Industry Information

Success at School is a national careers organisation for students aged 13-19. Their mission is to provide young people with the correct tools and information to make decisions about their future.

Teachers/Curriculum: All teachers at Sexey’s School ensure that key skills and essential knowledge permeate our curriculum from Year 7 to Year 13, allowing our students to make links in their learning as well as to the wider world of careers. All teachers include careers into their lessons, and support the development of employability skills. Staff have access to a wide range of general and subject specific careers resources on the school Intranet (Sharepoint).

Careerometer Widget

The widget below can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations to support the process of identifying potential careers.

The Careerometer widget provides access to a selection of headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects.

The data are organised by occupation: simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you.

Skillsometer Widget

Thinking about skills, interests and the ways these can link to jobs can be a helpful first step in identifying possible future jobs. Take the Skillometer quiz, which requires you to reflect on a number statements and decide what you love, are not sure about or dislike. The statements are presented within six well established occupational categories (Artistic, Realistic, Investigative, Conventional, Enterprising, and Social), which are then ranked against jobs. Once you have completed the quiz you  will be given a short list of job suggestions that are most likely to be suited to your own particular skills and interests. Each job can be explored as a description is presented together with information on pay and hours. For further information on the job, and to compare with other jobs go to the Careerometer.
