 Careers and Raising Aspirations

The aim of the Thomas Knyvett College Careers Programme is to raise the aspirations of all students who attend Thomas Knyvett College. 

Listed below are our yearly activities, which we plan closely with teachers and the Senior leadership  team to ensure that there is a strong link within the curriculum. We regularly review the activities to maximise learning potential for each student - enhancing their ambition and preparing them for the world of work. These activities are delivered within tutor time, assemblies and carefully selected lesson times.
