Year 9

In Year 9 students are prepared for choosing their option subjects.  To ensure students make informed decisions about their future career pathways, students are provided with:

  • Current Labour Market Information
  • Have the opportunity to experience higher and further education establishments
  • Have the opportunity to meet people with various occupations both in the private and public sectors
  • To experience various Careers events – such as a ‘Careers Day’ and ‘Dare to Dream Day’

It is imperative that students are provided with all the information they need to ensure they make the right choices and at ICA we endeavour to do this.
