Citizenship & PSHE
Personal Wellbeing helps young people to embrace change, feel positive about who they are and enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives. Personal wellbeing makes a major contribution to the promotion of personal development.
Citizenship equips students with the knowledge and skills needed for effective and democratic participation. It helps students to become informed, critical, active citizens who have the confidence and conviction to work collaboratively, take action and to try to make a difference in their communities and the wider world.
PSHCE deals with the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL). SEAL is a formalised method of developing confidence in students, a positive attitude to school and, in the process, helping them to improve their emotional wellbeing.
PSHCE is providing opportunities to work with multi-agency groups from outside school. Guest speakers include Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Road Safety Unit, City Magistrates, Homophobia workshops, Connexions, Careers Advisers, Financial experts and Health & Relationship Consultants.
With the help and support of several multi-agency groups in the community, the list continues to grow. There will also be PSHCE and Citizenship events and activities. Certain elements of Citizenship are included in other subject areas, particularly English and Core Religious Education.
Year 11 Recruitment Process
As part of our Pathways to Employment initiative, we are running an exercise for all Year 11 students.
Each student in Year 11 will be encouraged to apply for a position, as advertised on the school website - there are six different jobs to choose from, ranging from Shop Assistant to Apprentice Engineering Technician. Students are required to complete a standard Application Form and a one page covering letter for the position they are interested in. Completed documents will then be forwarded electronically to Careers Advisor Volunteers, who will assess the Application Form and covering letter to check they have met the required standard. Students who have been successful will be invited to attend an interview process, whilst those who have not will be given an opportunity to re-apply, and then hopefully be invited for interview. We intend to hold the interview process after the Spring break.
By giving our students this opportunity we feel that they will be able to experience a very realistic recruitment and selection process, which should be of great value to them in their future job searches and in their continued academic careers.
