Young people 008 253x202pxlYear 10 is when students really get started ...

... on the exam courses they will follow through to the end of Year 11. This can mean:

  • meeting new teachers and working with new groups of students.
  • the amount of course work will increase

They might take time to get used to these changes.

Year 10 students may also go on a work experience placement. Most students enjoy the chance to try work and get a lot out of it.

Careers advice

Careers advisers from C&K Careers work in most Calderdale and Kirklees schools and colleges. Advisers:

  • see students individually or in groups. Drop-in sessions in schools over break or lunchtimes are also offered, students can call in without an appointment. You can also make an appointment if you have concerns.
  • usually attend school parents evenings.

Check out the Year 10 page to see what they should be thinking about.

You can help too by:

  • talking to them about their ideas and their study progress – research suggests parents and carers are the single biggest influence on young people's careers choices.
  • listening to their ideas about work experience. If you have contacts that can offer a placement, they can organise work experience themselves – it will need to be checked for health and safety by our C&K Careers work experience team. Contact the school work experience co-ordinator or careers adviser for more help with this.

Search careers information:

      • Year 10 students will be given a login to search careersinfo logo for information on their career and course ideas, and much more, as well as to access our 'Publications'.
