Here at Egerton we give our students vocational sessions where they can explore ideas to help them in their future working lives. We have skilled staff to develop the student in a variety of trades including painting and decorating, joinery and electrics. In addition, we have workshop space and links with local businesses that support our students and offer placements so they can experience the real world of work.
In Vocation we also focus on developing students’ communication skills and confidence to apply for jobs and to fit into the work place. We employ role play techniques to help students understand how to deal with the general public and we act out difficult scenarios to a point of resolution in a calm manner. We teach the students the secrets of marketing, helping them to create positive CVs for themselves. By doing this we encourage in our students a positive mind-set, to be ambitious in their future aspirations and to realise our school values in all that they do.
