Support for our Careers programme

Are you a local Employer or Business owner? Could you help us with a small amount of you time?

As part of our careers and preparation for employment programme we are keen to introduce the students to a wide and varied range of employment options.

Part of this, importantly, involves developing a real knowledge of opportunities in different employment sectors.

Our students respond well to opportunities to learn from adults who could come and talk to them in an informal way about different job roles for example:

  • what their job involves
  • what a typical day looks like
  • what qualifications / or training is needed
  • what are the most rewarding and also challenging aspects of the role.

If you are an employer we would also like to ask for your support in helping students understand and develop their employability skills.  If either as an employee or employer, this is something you feel you could help us with in any small way or could offer 30 minutes or so of your time to  talk about your role, we would love to hear from you. Please contact Karen Revill at or call on 01642 811350
