Employers and other providers
We are currently in the process of expanding our employer network, to provide a broader range of opportunities for our students, knowing the great value that employer contact has, in developing young people’s aspirations and motivation. (Please see these links for supporting research:
Events that employers are now involved with:
- Annual Careers Fair (with ‘speed-dating’ element for year 10s)
- Workshops such as ‘Employment Law’, ‘Budgeting’ and ‘What Employers Want’
- Mock interviews
- Work experience
- Off-site visits to workplaces and Careers Fairs
All pupils in years 7-10 and year 12, attend our summer annual careers fair, which is integrated into the school’s careers programme. This offers providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils. Other opportunities are available, such as assemblies, Character & Culture lessons and parents evenings, by prior arrangement.
Providers are also welcome to provide printed materials for pupils to access in the Sixth Form Resource area and POD.
