PSE and Careers at AWS

Allestree Woodlands School is committed to the personal and social development of all our students.


We are keen to support their emotional wellbeing and health in every aspect of school life. In addition to guiding students in their post-16 education and career planning. We have PSE lessons every Friday covering the content outlined in the Planner on the PSE page.


In addition to PSE lessons we have focused events throughout the year and across the curriculum such as Next Steps Day, Healthy Living Day, CV Workshops, Mock Interviews, STEM events, Careers and Next Step Guidance.

Broad topics covered in PSE and Careers include:

- Emotional, Social and Physical Wellbeing

- Life Skills and Next Steps Preparation

- Understanding, Awareness and Appreciation for Society and the Wider World

This website has been created with students, parents and carers in mind. Please navigate this website, accessing the PSE and Careers Hub section at the top of this page.
