Careers Enrichment and Engagement

We organise a wide variety of events that help pupils achieve their potential and equip them to move through into the world of work.  Thanks to partnerships with local universities, companies and organisations, students get the opportunity to experience university life and explore possible career paths. 

Whilst school is closed, please make full use of our "Careers Learning at Home" page which provides useful links to career related activities and information for all year groups.

We acknowledge that the skills required of the future workforce and predicted demographic changes are encouraging schools to become more focussed on the learning opportunities we make available to our students.

Such engagement can take a variety of forms, but typically focuses upon: 

  • Enhancing students employability skills in response to the demands of the local and global economy.
  • Creating opportunities for their development typically through collaborative employer partnership arrangements.
  • Forming partnerships in enterprise and creating innovation initiatives.
  • Developing students responsibilities to the local community whilst providing a valuable service.
