Careers at Every Level

Work Experience



At Tettenhall Wood School, we aim to ensure a high quality of vocational and careers education is to be delivered to our young people in a meaningful and appropriate way for their needs and circumstances.


Our vision is to increase the opportunities our students have of finding quality, paid employment in later life. Through pupil centred planning with the Education, Health & Care plans at the centre, we support students to articulate their aspirations for adult life, including for many their aspiration to work.
