Community and Careers Education

Our curriculum is focused on the Pursuit of Happiness. A key focus of this is to think about fulfilment, purpose and reaching one’s true potential. At Riverside School we pride ourselves on a personalised approach to education and our Community and Careers education is no different. Our Community and Careers Education is centred upon the interests and aspirations of our young people. Through our programme we aim to improve the possibility and probability of paid work, raise the level of work related skills to improve independence and enrich life experiences and emotional wellbeing.

We are working in partnership with Talentino to develop our Community and Careers programme. Talentino have a clear vision to change the energy, focus and accessibility of the careers world to provide all young people with the support they need to develop their early careers effectively. They have vast experience with supporting young people with special educational needs. Through Talentino, we are delivering the “Careers at Every Level” programme which includes a wide range of resources to support in the delivery of our Community and Careers Education.
