Every student is encouraged to set their sights high for their future, regardless of their background or individual circumstances. In order to help them prepare for college, university and the world of employment, we provide regular careers guidance in school. We also draw on specialist support from local partner organisations.
Through our Leadership specialism and enrichment programme, we develop links with leading local employers in the professions, business, industry and the public, community and voluntary sectors. As well as addressing the students and answering their questions about what it’s like to work in their field, we look for exciting work experience and mentoring opportunities with them.
As part of their preparations for the world of work, students also participate in the Business in the Community programme. Here students have the opportunity to launch their own small businesses, and acquire skills of merchandising, marketing, sales and business organisation.
