Home Learning Activities for all year groups
We have put together some activities that students who are working from home can do, to help them find out more about their future options/career.
Each activity sheet prompts the students to work through the suggested activities on Careerpilot and ties in with our PSHE Scheme of work.
Each sheet should take students approx. 1 hour to complete.

Free online courses for Y11 - Y13 on a course/topic you might want to do in the future
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are free online courses on 1000s of topics, designed by universities. They are very accessible even if you are not thinking about university and are for anybody with an interest in the topic.
If your school/college is now closed they could be a great way to:
- keep in touch with a course or topic you are interested in,
- acquire even more knowledge,
- prepare for your future course at uni or for a career.
And, they will look great when you mention them on your personal statement , CV or application!
You do not need qualifications to start the courses. They usually take a few hours a week over 2-4 weeks.
Here are a few examples:
Future Quest also have some resources you can access for free
My Future Quest is a set of online outreach activities available to all secondary school students aimed to help equip you with knowledge and skills you may need for your future. From Monday May 4th until June 15th we will be publishing new activities on our website each week (excluding half term). These activities will cover a range of themes such as personal strengths, wellbeing, goal setting and transition. You can dip in and out of activities that you feel that would be helpful to you and for the last theme we are turning to you and asking what you want to learn about.
To keep up to date make sure you sign up to our newsletter on the website.
You can also access other activities, for example:
- Joe Wicks' PE lesson
- Noel Fielding's art club
Careers that can help in a coronavirus crisis and which jobs will grow now?
Your students will be hearing in the news about job sectors and jobs that are making a difference in the coronavirus crisis and it might well be they are changing their thoughts about what they might like to do in the future.
We have created a new section in Careerpilot that shows some sectors and jobs that are in the news currently so students can look at them in more detail.
Another impact of the coronavirus crisis is that there has been a big shift in jobs that are growing and declining. We explain a bit more about this and give some examples.
