Careers at Brymore

At Brymore we endeavour to prepare our pupils for their future through a multifaceted approach to careers education. The three R’s that we promote (Responsibility, Resourcefulness and Resilience) are an integral part of developing leadership qualities, interpersonal and employability skills.

Brymore’s classroom activities and extra-curricular programme provide multiple opportunities for pupils to learn about the world of work and develop their entrepreneurial skills. Exposure to a diverse range of activities raises aspirations, provides insights into the career pathways open to them, and develops their skill set. Every Year 11 has the opportunity to talk to the Trust career advisor and information on doing this can be found here.

Our unique working farm and garden, for example, equip pupils with an understanding of careers within the land based sector, and business sustainability, functions and processes from production to sale. Each boy’s farm and garden duties, their experiences in the workshops, visits by employers, and external visits (such as agricultural shows) develop their enterprise skills and work place experiences.

Careers education is the responsibility of all Brymore staff, and our boys can expect advice and guidance from both formal and informal conversations across the school campus. Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) is formally delivered through tutors, house staff, the PSHRE programme, curriculum lessons, extra-curricular activities, and personal guidance meetings. But sometimes the best advice is learnt in wellies on the yard! We have a dedicated page about careers and pathways including lots of information and external links which can be located here and is ideal for both parents and students.

We love to champion success stories from Alumni, as this can be the most tangible, aspiring way of educating our pupils about their future options. If you are an old boy and feel you could offer insights and help us with our careers education then please contact the school on 01278 652369 or email lorraine.warren@brymoreacademy.co.uk
