Vocational Skills

vocational bannerAs pupils progress into years 10 and 11, they will begin courses that relate to vocational studies. The aim here is to develop the types of skills, knowledge and understanding that may be useful either in employment in trades and services after school and college, or just as important, DIY skills that help to save money and bring creative satisfaction.
