Employability

Employability

Here at Round Oak School our aim is to continue to develop the “whole” student Post 16. It is not just about developing our students’ academic skills and qualifications but also about the transition into employability, adulthood and an increasingly independent life. This is something which we believe in completely and fully encourage and support in all our students. 

Students are given the opportunity to make their own options and choices Post 16 as to what they study.
