Secondary 4 Enterprises
Head of Department: Gary Smith and Tracy Walker (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday)
Our careers programme supports our pupils in preparing for adulthood. Secondary 4 promotes independence, life skills, and giving our young people work experience. Our School Curriculum has given our pupils are range of skills which we hope to generalise in simulated work opportunities. We continue to promote many forms of AAC (PODD, Makaton, PECs ) and use a variety of access methods including Eye Gaze technology within the businesses.
Our young people access our enterprise curriculum on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We currently have four businesses in our enterprise: café Crazy Krispy Café, reuse shop, Scoop and Pour; cleaning services, Bubble Warriors and a print studio, Funky Print. All businesses were named by the workers. Young people generally remain in their form class for the duration of their time in S4 until their final year which is spent in Redwood class. This enables more transition work to be completed. They work within their business for 1 year and then move to another business.
