Work Skills


At The Polygon School we are keen to prepare our pupils for ‘life after school’ as best as we can.


All pupils in KS4 receive a weekly lesson in Work-Skills. Engagement Centre pupils receive this provision as part of the Engagement timetable delivered in a less formal approach.


Peter Rooke (Pupil Engagement Officer for Vocational and Alternative Learning) and Nicole Thomas (Senior KS4 SSA) plan and deliver these sessions.


We work in conjunction with EBP South and Sam Ashton (Careers Advisor) to use their resources to complement our delivery of Work-Skills.


The 2-year programme covers:     


  • CV Writing

  • Practice Interview Techniques

  • Entry Level Health and Safety in the Workplace

  • First Aid Essentials

  • Fire Safety

  • Assessing Myself for Work

  • Learning to be Financially Capable

  • Forming Relationships and Understanding Others

  • Developing Life Aspirations.
