Careers Reward for Ysgol Hafod Lon
A Gwynedd Secondary School has got the grade after receiving the prestigious Careers Wales Mark.
The accolade, which recognises a commitment to continuous quality improvement within an educational institution, was awarded to Ysgol Hafod Lon for its dedication and enthusiasm in preparing and supporting young people entering the world of work or continuing in education.
Working alongside the team at Careers Wales, the school carried out an audit of their careers and world of work curriculum and identified areas for improvement, resulting in the production of a development plan.
The plan will further help the school to prepare and support students for a successful transition into work, training or further education and help reduce the number of young people potentially becoming unemployed.
Donna Roberts Head Teacher said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the Careers Wales Mark, as we are committed to ensuring that our pupils develop their enterprise and work skills through a variety of activities to ensure that they can follow their learning pathway on to college or work placement. We work closely with Careers Wales to ensure that each pupil has the opportunity to have experienced a wide range of experiences according to their own personal interests and needs. We are very grateful to Careers Wales for assisting us with this.”
Speaking of the school’s achievement, Bethan Crowe, Team Manager for Careers Wales, said: “This is an excellent achievement and a clear demonstration that young people in Ysgol Hafod Lon are receiving the support they need to help them find out about and prepare for the world of work as well as helping them to make realistic informed decisions about their future.”
