Career Related Learning
Career-related learning at Valley Invicta Primary School at Kings Hill is about opening a world of opportunities for our children and show them that there are endless opportunities and experiences they can have in the world of work.
We encourage pupils to explore different career opportunities as early as possible and encourage pupils to challenge career stereotypes, so that they know they can work towards anything they would like in the future.
Our Personal Development curriculum which intertwines PSHE, RSE, RE and our bespoke Ambition Project is full of rich, hands-on experiences, bringing the world of work into the school building.
