Information for Staff

All the best teachers are teachers of careers!

Why? Because we all want the children we teach to live happy and fulfilled lives and a large part of that revolves around having a successful career.

We all have the opportunity to contribute to the teaching of careers at Swift Academies by,

  • Delivering careers related sessions through our work as form tutors
  • Talking to pupils about our own careers and the career paths we have chosen
  • Developing links with local employers who can help bring our curriculum to life and give it a purpose
  • Taking time to understand the post-16 options available to pupils and discussing them in class
  • Inviting local employers, colleges and universities to our lessons to make links between school and the wider world.
