As part of the careers offering being headed up by Neal Layton we will be utilising fast Tomato throughout the lower school. Since 2003, Fast Tomato has been one of the most popular online career guidance programmes for young people, helping millions of students explore the many different career opportunities open to them. The system will be introduced in the first term back with the opportunity for all in the lower school to take part.
After a quick sign up, students answer 72 simple questions relating to work which normally takes less than 10 minutes. This produces their individual Career Profile. Starting at Y8 this will help to signpost potential routes of study, and information careers which may be of interest, work styles and work places, helping them appreciate how their unique make-up can fit into the world of employment.
