Post 16 Department Jobs and Responsibilities

The Post 16 department aims to ensure students develop a level of independence and responsibility, to provide them with the skills required to prepare them for their future.

Alongside a varied and balance curriculum, students are encouraged to participate in enriching activities. One way in which they can do this is by applying for job vacancies; positions that are in school that allow students to develop key skills. Job vacancies include an ICT apprentice, assistant caretaker, animal health officers and environmental officers. A job advert is put up in the student’s social area which outlines the main responsibilities and duties. The students complete an application and are then shortlisted to for an interview.
