Year 10 student

Young people 008 253x202pxlYear 10 is when students really get started ...

... on the exam courses they will follow through to the end of Year 11. This can mean:

  • meeting new teachers and working with new groups of students.
  • the amount of course work will increase

It may take time to get used to these changes.

Year 10 students may also go on a work experience placement. Most students enjoy the chance to try work and they get a lot out of it.

Careers advice

Careers advisers from C&K Careers work in most Calderdale and Kirklees schools and colleges. Our advisers:

  • see students individually or in groups and offer drop-in sessions in schools over break or lunchtimes, students can call in without an appointment.You can also make an appointment if you have concerns.
  • usually attend school parents evenings.

Check out the Year 10 page to see what students should be thinking about.

You can help too by:

  • talking to them about their ideas and their study progress – research suggests parents and carers are the single biggest influence on young people's careers choices.
  • listening to their ideas about work experience. If you have contacts that can offer a placement, students can organise work experience themselves – it will need to be checked for health and safety by our C&K Careers work experience team. Contact the school work experience co-ordinator or careers adviser for more help with this.
  • also check out the quick links below and at the bottom of every page.

Search careers information:

      • Year 10 students will be given a login to search careersinfo logo for information on their career and course ideas, and much more, as well as to access our 'booklets'.
