Home Economics contributes to the teaching of careers in the college by having a careers board in each room. Presentations are also made to pupils in years 10 and 12 outlining the subjects the department has to offer and the employment opportunities that can result from studying one of these subjects.
Currently many of the pupils who study Food and Nutrition, Child Development or Health and Social Care enter professions such as nursing, speech therapy, occupational therapy, dietetics etc.
As a department we envisage after COVID 19 there will be a need for nutritionists and psychologists to deal with the physical and mental health effects of the pandemic. Our students will be well placed to enter careers in these fields.
