In year 8 we concentrate on the types of jobs that exist in a range of organisations. All pupils take part in the "Step into the NHS" competition and have the opportunity to use the Cybervisit job game online (please see Mrs Crane to get our school password).
All pupils will also register on www.U-Explore.com as part of their work in PDL. The website gives all pupils the opportunity to research their chosen careers and find out more about the opportunities available to them when they leave Thornhill, including live and up to date local apprenticeship vacancies.
In the Spring term our year 8 pupils will then complete a pathways program in PDL. This is designed to help them make sensible option choices ready to begin key stage 4.
