Pupils in Years 8 to 10 follow the Employability Programme.From Year 10 onwards all pupils follow a career programme. In Year 11 pupils are given the opportunity to participate in a work experience programme and in Year 12 gain experience in aptitude testing, job/course application and interview techniques.
They also liaise closely with Careers Officers from the Training and Employment Agency to ensure the best possible decisions are reached in preparation for life after GCSE’s. St Benedict’s College has also close links with Antrim Business Partnership.A small group of Key Stage 4 pupils following a course in Occupational Studies in a link with the North East Institute take part in a one day per week Work Placement as an essential part of their learning and assessment.
