Building skills

Having a career is not just about “getting a job”. It is about how we help you to build all of those skills you are going to need for the future.

As well as the vocational skills you learn as part of your chosen pathway, along your educational journey with us you will also develop skills such as teamwork, communication, decision making, self-esteem and confidence. These are all really important skills to have as you move into your adult life.

Study Programme

Whatever your aspirations are for life after college, your study programme will be individualised to meet these. We make sure you have access to everything to meet your needs and aspirations and work on all the skills you will need for a successful future in your chosen field.

You will meet employers who might give you a job in the future, we will arrange visits to places where people work within the local community, and you will take part in work experience within your curriculum area throughout your time at Petty Pool.

We’re here to help you

We have a team of LEAP (Learning, Achievement, Achievement & Progression) Tutors as well as our Transitions Coordinator Katie, who will support you. They will help you to think about different types of jobs, how you will get to work, who will support you, and lots of other things too.

Here are some useful websites to help you to start to think about careers and what you might like to do in the future.
