Key Stage 3

Learning for Life and Work (LLW) is central in helping young people develop the fundamental skills, knowledge, qualities and dispositions that are pre-requisites for life and work. This area of learning contains the contributory strands of: EmployabilityHome EconomicsLocal and Global Citizenship and Personal Development. At KS3 pupils have timetabled lessons for Citizenship and Employability.

Within Citizenship four key concepts are explored:

  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Human Rights
  • Equality and Social Justice
  • Democracy and participation

Within Employability the focus is on:

  • Career management
  • Enterprise and Work in the local and global economy

Pupils are encouraged to develop an understanding of and respect for the rights, equality and diversity of all without discrimination.
Pupils are encouraged to explore issues surrounding employment and develop skills and qualities relating to their chosen career.

Key Stage 4

At KS4 Learning for Life and Work is delivered through collapsed timetable days in line with the statutory requirements. Pupils enjoy a rich variety of experiences through active participation and visits from external agencies. KS4 pupils are widely encouraged to develop well informed opinions, make responsible decisions and identify issues affecting the local and global community.

Extra Curricular

Pupils participate in a range of projects and visits relating to their studies. Such projects include Prejudice Face On whereby pupils interact with students from other schools exploring issues such as sectarianism and discrimination. Every year our year 10 pupils visit Stormont to give them an experience of democracy in action. There are also numerous opportunities for pupils to get involved in charitable projects such as the Hamper and Shoebox Appeal.
