Work Related Learning

Work Related Learning intent, implementation and impact statements, schemes of work and learning journeys.

All Crompton House School students will leave Full Time Education at some stage in the near future. Work related Learning (WRL) is the potential bridge between their academic studies and working life. In addition, it is a potential tool to both challenge and develop their social skills. WRL allows students to: 

• Explore potential career ideas. 

• Develop work ethic and an appreciation of the ‘working environment’ 

• Develop work skills that are transferable into other areas of their life 

• Gather skills and evidence that can be used in adult life.

Through carefully sequenced long and medium-term schemes of work, we teach all students key skills and knowledge. All lessons are taught by members of the ICT and Business department.

Students at Crompton House School learn about careers in KS3 in WRL. All students will have a minimum of one employer engagement per year in a practical setting either in school or in the employers’ workplace.

In Key stage 4 all students will have a work experience placement in an area to suit their individual needs. Placements available include: working with sports leaders, working in a restaurant, working on an allotment and working in a residential setting. This is the introduction to understanding different job roles and identifying personal skills and aspirations.

Impact is measured through a range of practical tasks and presentations. The emphasis is on student cantered learning with outcomes tailored to an individual’s needs. Support will be put in to place when teachers judge that students are not fulfilling their potential. Our aim is to encourage pupils to look to their future career paths and to fully understand the world of work and the opportunities it can provide.
