Careers and Enterprise

The culmination of Heaton Manor students' hard work and endeavour in support of THREE exciting Careers and Enterprise projects for Primary Schools took place recently.

In partnership with the Newcastle United Foundation, students from Heaton Manor School have been mentored and studied for the OCR accredited ‘Premier League Enterprise’ Qualification. These students have formed three distinct Project management groups delivering the Civil Service Local and two Health and Well Being Careers events at OLT Primary Schools.

Newcastle United hosted an evening of celebration for students and their families for students to receive their certificates and OCR qualification, having previously completed their portfolios of evidence over the course of two terms. Photos from the event can be seen in our gallery.

Huge congratulations to all 'Junior Project Managers' from Heaton Manor School involved with this real, relevant and inspiring programme of Careers Education.
