Careers Education, Advice & Guidance
BESP BUSINESS BREAKFASTS
The BESP Business Breakfasts provide Year 10 pupils with the opportunity to meet with employers from a variety of sectors and ask them questions about their careers. These events give pupils insight into various careers, the routes into such careers and what working life is like for different sectors. Our final Business Breakfast for this year will take place on 15th July 2019. If you would like to support this event, please contact Michelle Phillips (Culture Lead).
Labour Market Information (LMI)
The following links provide information about the workplace or labour market. Labour market information describes the condition of the labour market, past and present, as well as future projections. It makes clear where work opportunities are increasing or decreasing, what occupations exist, what you need to study to become a professional in that occupation, what is required to take up an occupation, how one can find a job, change job or progress in a career.
Access to the report can be found on the link below, along with access to external websites:

All pupils currently in Year 10 participate in the 16x16 initiative from Luton Borough Council. The project involves pupils undertaking 16 activities to improve their employability skills. Luton Borough Council is funding this initiative via the Luton Investment Framework. For further information, go to www.luton.gov.uk/LIF
The project is in response to feedback from employers over recent years that young people are not prepared for the world of work; they lack skills such as communication, teamwork, self-management, problem solving and resilience, for example.
The majority of the work for this project will take place during school hours, but can also be achieved in any extra-curricular activities or clubs the pupils participate in. Please follow the links below to resources that pupils may find useful when completing their 16x16 evidence sheets.
