CWRE - Careers & Work Related Experiences
Careers and work-related experiences (CWRE) is a cross-cutting theme in the Curriculum for Wales for 3 to 16 year-olds. Schools and settings are expected to follow the Statutory Guidance for CWRE in developing their curriculum. At Greenfield School, CWRE is taught using Rich Tasks and is built into the six areas of learning experiences. CWRE develops as pupils move throughout the key stages, with opportunities for on-site and partnership work experiences. As a school, we have a number of opportunities for real-life authentic experiences that help to develop exploring self and society, widening horizons, overcoming barriers, exploring opportunities and developing adaptability and resilience.
From Key Stage 4 onwards, pupils complete accreditation that is linked to Careers and Work Related Experiences, taking part in enterprise activities and attending out of school Careers events.

Future Valley Construction Partnership
We have established an effective partnership with Future Valley Construction who are responsible for the development of the new A465 road. Pupils have engaged both in school and on the construction site, learning important roles and responsibilities associated with this sector of employment. Pupils have developed relationships with key staff, understood the importance of PPE and worked as teams to complete various projects. The partnership is ongoing and will continue to develop over the next few years.
