If you have any questions about our CRL Programme, speak to our CRL Leader Mrs Ashiq.

Co-op Academies Trust is committed to ensuring all of our student have access to high-quality Careers Related Learning (CRL) opportunities throughout each stage of their development. Our CRL programmes will inspire, raise aspirations and give our students and optimistic outlook on life.

At Co-op Academy Clarice Cliff, the vision for the development of CRL is to provide the very best opportunities to enable our pupils to broaden their horizons and raise aspirations. We want our children to see a clear link and purpose between their learning experiences and their future.

Our Learner Entitlement

All children are entitled to consistent and whole school delivery of CRL to ensure they understand who they could become and develop a healthy sense of self to enable them to reach their full potential. This will include real life experiences of the workplace either virtually, physically or with in-school visitors for all year groups.

What is CRL?

CRL stands for Careers Related Learning. It is now a statutory requirement for all primary schools to now include CRL in their curriculum. It is very different to ‘Careers’ in secondary school where children are given advice and guidance on future careers etc. This is not what we will be providing in primary schools but instead focusing on broadening horizons and raising aspirations, giving children a wide range of experiences of the world including the world of work. It is about opening doors, showing children the vast range of possibilities open to them and helping to keep their options open for as long as possible. And there is a range of attributes, skills, and behaviours that can be encouraged in this early stage of a child’s life that will leave them in the best possible position as they begin their transitions to secondary education and to future life.
