Work Related Learning provides links between employers and students to develop skills, knowledge and understanding which will be useful in working life. Activities include mock interviews, aspirational careers events, careers advice and guidance, and Enterprise days.
Enterprise education is a key component of Work Related Learning. It helps to raise aspirations and develop valuable skills for both higher education and employment.

Haydock High School has commissioned the services of GMCP Career Connect to support students with decision making and transition planning. Alison Bellmon, Career Connect Advisor, works closely with students, parents/carers and key members of staff in delivering impartial information, advice and guidance. Delivery largely takes place in the form of face-to-face careers guidance interviews, drop in clinics, attendance at parents' events and group work sessions. You can learn more about Career Connect at www.careerconnect.org.uk. Alison Bellmon can be contacted through school or at Alison.Bellmon@careerconnect.org.uk.
In Year 10, we have a Post 16 week where students go to local college providers to give them an insight into college life. They also spend a day completing workshops with organisations like the Armed Forces, NatWest, St. John's Ambulance, St. Helens Chamber and Everton FC. The final day is spent looking into the different jobs available with organisations such as the Fire Brigade and the Police Force.
In Year 11, students complete a Mock Interview process where they are required to fill out an application form, attend an interview and then review and evaluate their performance with their employer.
These are just a few of the activities involved in Haydock High School's Enterprise, Work Related Learning and Careers Education. For further information on other activities, including those in Key Stage 3, please do not hesitate in contacting Mrs Fletcher, the WRL, Enterprise and Careers Coordinator.
At Haydock High School our mission is to care for and support
each student so that they fulfil their potential, make outstanding progress and become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. We will be relentless in developing our skills, and work with our parents, Governors and wider partners to ensure that every student is known, contributes to our community and is
fulfilled in achieving their ambitions.
The pace of curriculum change continues to accelerate, for example introducing a more flexible Key Stage 3. Our constant planning offers confidence for successful delivery and assessment of these areas.
Over the last few years we have been successful in achieving Sportsmark, Investors in People, Artsmark, Careers and Guidance and Healthy Schools accreditation. We were also awarded the accolade of a ‘Get Set’ school in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics.
We take great pride in serving the needs of our students and are dedicated to each and every one of them making outstanding progress in their time at our school. To this end, we undertake a significant commitment and interest in them as individuals so that we can most effectively meet their specific needs. This care for their achievement means we have the very highest expectations of their attendance, respect for the school and our ethos, behaviour, happiness, fulfilment and academic progress.
