The Secondary Delivery Model
Fully Tested Programme Delivery
he Job Junction Secondary has been developed by a team of qualified, highly experienced secondary school teachers and employer/educational engagement consultants, with direct input from business and industry, and has already been fully tested in a variety of delivery situations.
Two Flexible Routes
The Job Junction Secondary can be accessed via two flexible routes:
- Discovery Programme
- BeBrilliant Workshops
Both routes are flexible to suit your requirements. After all, no two schools are alike. And we like that!
The Discovery Programme
The most effective route is the Discovery Programme as this process works best when it is given real visibility since the messages are absorbed on a continual basis.
The Discovery route consists of three 12-week programmes designed, as the name would suggest, to continuously develop the students’ and their connections.
This programme also affords you access to SCOOP which allows you to monitor, measure and report on the programme’s effectiveness. Very handy for fulfilling your Ofsted and CAIEG requirements!
Furthermore, the Discovery Programme affords you to access the Business Engagement Programme, the Positive Links tool and the support of our Business Engagement Co-ordinators.

Flexible Delivery To Suit You
Flexible delivery to suit you, not us. The Discovery Programme was initially designed to be delivered twice weekly (two lunchtime sessions) over the three school terms – and this is the ideal delivery model. However it’s flexible enough to be delivered during form time or during PHSE lessons.
With a programme this flexible, you can choose how, and when, to deliver The Job Junction.
The BeBrilliant Workshops
The BeBrilliant Workshops are a series of five year-appropriate workshops.
These workshops perfectly complement the Discovery Programme and can be delivered during PHSE lessons at any time during the school year.
They also work well for those schools who cannot commit immediately to the Discovery Programme.
The Job Junction BeBrilliant Workhops support your Ofsted inspection by providing careers education, information and guidance (CEIAG).
What Does The Job Junction Secondary Programme Achieve?
So, essentially this unique programme designed with direct input from business and industry develops key critical employability skills, alongside academic qualifications, and provides the connection between education, business and industry. The programme’s content is continually evolving which guarantees relevance and the required outcomes.
It does this continually on an ongoing daily basis. It’s a thread which runs through the fabric of a Job Junction school – and you can see it, hear it and sense it.
The programme celebrates individuality and develops a specific set of skills and qualities whilst building character, resilience and independence. Furthermore it inspires young people, raising aspirations as it goes. So much so we see proven improvement in attendance, behaviour and attitude to learning. Motivated and committed young people develop into The Employee of the future. Everyone wins.
