Enterprise and Careers in Jarrow School
Every student in Jarrow School enjoys a full range of enterprising challenges from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave. Competitions run throughout the year to ensure pupils gain the knowledge, skills and competencies they need to succeed in the modern world. Our younger children learn about teamwork and effective communication through business projects, community and charity events and interactive IT quizzes and games to discover what they might like to do in the future.
Our older pupils build on this firm foundation by visiting local and national businesses, experience job interviews and work placements to put their learning into practice. They enter (and regularly win) amazing competitions before they move into further education, work or training. This they do with a positive attitude, a willingness to embark on new challenges and a real desire to do well.
