At Stockport School we have established a new programme focussed on widening the horizons of our students. In Years 8 and 9 you will have the opportunity to take part in our ACE or Aspiring Careers Education programme. Workshops will provide you with opportunities to hear from and interview real life employers and employees from across Stockport and the North West.
If you have a suggestion of a career you would like to hear about during one of our ACE sessions, please contact our School Careers Leader, Mr E Riley Email here for further information.
At Stockport School, we want to support you and enable you to become work ready. From the moment you begin in Year 7 you are building up a range of key employability skills, such as:
Take the time to consider these skills, which ones do you feel confident about? Try to use your experiences in school to enhance your employability skills. Take the opportunity to grow outside of the classroom by getting involved in school life, the local community and in extra-curricular activities.
Feedback and Guidance
We are always looking for our students’ views on our Careers Programme. If you have anything you would like to share, please contact the School Careers Leader, Mr E Riley Email here
You can also contact Mrs Schofield Email here if you have any queries or questions relating to Careers and Further Education.
