As Year 11 students start thinking about their next steps, Richard Huish College and Heathfield Community School have worked to provide advice to current Year 11 Business students showing them the different progression options available to them.

The pupils were given advice on the routes they could take once they finish school and explored in further detail the Vocational Business qualification. This is a practical led course offering students future opportunities at University, Apprenticeship and Employment, ranging from Marketing, Accounting, Event Management, International Business, Human Resources and Recruitment, Retail and Business Management.

Sharon Williams, Vocational Business Course Manager, remotely joined Head of Business Studies at Heathfield, Mr Caddy, during his Year 11 Business lessons to share course information, student success stories and answer questions from pupils. Sharon was joined by 75 engaging pupils all currently considering their next steps.

Sharon spoke on the sessions saying “It was evident that Mr Caddy has a clear interest in his pupils’ future plans and a passion for Business as a subject. His pupils were attentive and asked interesting questions. They were a credit to Mr Caddy and Heathfield Community School. I look forward to meeting many of you at our upcoming Open Events”.

Mr Caddy shared “Thank you to Sharon for her fantastic insight into the Vocational Business course. She presented in such an informative way, our students really valued learning about how the vocational pathway is an interesting option, not only for students who are interested in Business, but also for students who want to learn and build on their knowledge and understanding in a practical way. A number of students are interested in finding out more and appreciate the opportunity given by Sharon and Huish. ”
