Bradford Pathways aims to transform the skills and employment infrastructure. It will to prepare young people for the changing business and economic needs and support them into a wide range of high-wage, high-skills and high-demand careers in sectors that are important to the economy of Bradford and the region.
Central to this transformation is the Offer to Young People, which includes a minimum of 100 hours of experience in the world of work, throughout their learner journey.
Schools have a key role in in delivering this offer to our young people, alongside:
- Embedding the Pathway Essentials (core 21st century skills), and Career Awareness, Career Exploration and Career Preparation activities, into the relevant stages of the curriculum.
- Promoting Bradford Pathways to young people and their parents/carers.
- Supporting young people to progress through personalised learning and to achieve positive outcomes evidenced through the individual learning plans.
- Working in partnership with employers, learning, careers and enterprise providers to support young people in their pathways.
Through Bradford Pathways we will work with schools to facilitate support to deliver this offer and also enable them to also fulfil their legal obligations to ensure that pupils have access to independent and impartial careers guidance that both inspires them and raises their aspirations.
Schools that wish to participate in Bradford Pathways should contact us here.
